Forest NB has awarded the Ernie Strickland Memorial Scholarship annually since 1998. Ernie Strickland, who passed away in 1996, was an instructor at the Maritime Forest Ranger School and a dedicated volunteer to the forestry sector. The scholarship was created by the New Brunswick Sub-Licensee Forestry Alliance (NBS-LFA) to recognize his exceptional contributions made to the New Brunswick forestry sector.
Scholarship applicants must be enrolled as a student at a post-secondary educational institution in Canada. They must also be a member of Forest NB, or a member’s spouse, child, grand-child, or employee.
