Dear IFSA World,  

The application for the IFSA Development Fund is open again and you can now apply. This round, priority will be given to IFSA member(s) attending Regional Meetings, IFSS 2017, or United Nations Conferences. This fund will be allocated taking priority areas into consideration.


The IFSA Development Fund serves to:


· Support students in funding IFSA projects, events, or other forestry-related activities in developing nations (Low Income Countries, or LICs)  such as organising workshops, trainings, etc.


· Support the attendance of students from Local Committees (LCs) belonging to Low Income Countries to attend IFSA or IFSA-related events such as the annual International Forestry Students’ Symposium (IFSS), Regional Meetings, or United Nations conferences.




Individuals or LCs can apply for the fund. For LC applications, the project that the LC carries out should relate to IFSA on a larger level than a local one. This means, projects that relate to one single LC cannot benefit from this fund.


The grant is fundraised by fellow students, who organise an auction and sometimes a tombola during the annual International Forestry Students Symposium and Regional Meetings.


If you think you are, or your project is eligible, please send your application to [email protected] before 27th March 2017 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 document.


The recipients will be chosen by the IFSA Council and informed no later than two weeks after this date.
