At IFSS 2016 in Austria and Germany, our membership approved the creation of IFSA Officials Fund.

The IFSA Officials Fund serves to support the attendance of IFSA Official(s) to IFSA or IFSA-related events such as the Interim Meeting, annual International Forestry Students’ Symposium (IFSS), Regional Meetings, or United Nations Conferences.


Elected or Appointed IFSA Officials (Direction, Commission and Sub-Commission Heads, Liaison Officers, and Regional Representatives) for 2016-2017 can apply for the fund.

If you are interested in applying for the Officials Fund, please send your application to [email protected] by November 30th at 23:59 CET. An application will not be reviewed until all requested documents have been received. For details on what to include in your application package, please see attached Officials Fund Application guideline file.

The recipients will be chosen by the IFSA Council and informed no later than two weeks after call has ended. Please take note that successful applicant(s) can only be refunded maximum 50% of the proposed expenses  in order to support as many Officials as possible.
