Washington SIC: Education

In Washington, the SFI® program works with schools, universities, landowner groups, public agencies, and the public to foster educational opportunities that promote sustainable forestry.

The Washington State SFI Implementation Committee (SIC) is offering two scholarships to Washington students pursuing an education in Forestry or Natural Resource Management.

  • One scholarship is available to high school seniors who will be attending, full-time (12 units) during the 2016–2017 school year, a Washington college or university and intend to enroll in an accredited Forestry or Natural Resources program.

  • One scholarship is available to continuing college-level students who will be attending, full-time (12 units) during the 2016–2017 school year, a Washington college or university and are enrolled in courses offered through an accredited Forestry or Natural Resources program.

Each successful applicant will be awarded a one-time scholarship of up to $1000. Deadline for applications is May 01, 2016.

In 2009 the Washington state SIC began donating $500 and custom SFI t-shirts to the winners of the state FFA forestry contest so that these deserving students could attend the national FFA forestry contest held each year in Indianapolis.  The team from Mt. Baker High School has won the state competition and gone on to represent Washington state nationally for five consecutive years.

In 2011 the team from Mt. Baker High School placed fourth in the nation at the National FFA Forestry Career Development Event.  This is the highest a team from Washington State has placed.
