Eligibility Requirements

The Bartlett Tree Foundation provides scholarship funds annually to participating two-year and four-year college programs. The participating institutions, in accordance with their criteria, select the student recipients. The students must be actively enrolled in a course of study that leads to a degree in arboriculture, forestry, urban forestry, horticulture, plant pathology, botany, or other closely related discipline. Students must maintain a sufficient grade point average. Good character, noted recognition, and financial need are also determining factors for student eligibility. Students at participating schools can contact their professors for further information.

At-Large Scholarships for Any Schools That Offer Relevant Programs

In addition to the Foundation Scholarship provided to participating schools, the Bartlett Tree Foundation also offers scholarships for students in arboriculture/urban forestry who have a genuine interest in a career in arboriculture. These scholarships are called At-Large scholarships and are available to students at Foundation-supported schools as well as two- and four-year colleges and universities that have programs in horticulture, arboriculture, or urban forestry.

The At-Large scholarship program allows the Bartlett Foundation to assist new programs outside of our currently supported schools, while also providing the opportunity for existing Foundation schools to assist additional deserving students in their academic pursuits.
