Tor Jonsson Memorial Fund
Awarded every year as a travel scholarship for study trips* in the Nordic countries (including Sweden) to students at the Faculty of Forest Sciences. Study trips focused on forest management planning or silviculture have priority, as do applicants born in Västergötland. Funds are not awarded for trips included in courses or for fuel costs.
*For trips carried out in conjunction with completion of degree projects, applications can be submitted continuously throughout the academic year for students in the three-year Forest Management and five-year Forest Science programmes. The application must, also in this case, be submitted before the trip is conducted and a copy of the approved work plan attached.
Magda and Folke Carlsson Scholarship Fund
Awarded as a travel scholarship to regular students in the five-year Forest Science programme or to recent Master of Science in Forestry (120 or 60 credits) graduates from the Faculty of Forest Sciences who graduated after 1 April 2010, as a grant to cover costs for individual forest study trips abroad. 1/10th of the scholarship amount is paid out only after the travel report has been submitted and approved. If special reasons exist, the scholarship can also be awarded as a study scholarship.
Nils Delin Scholarship Fund
Awarded to Master of Science in Forestry (120 or 60 credits) graduates from the Faculty of Forest Sciences, with degree awarded in 2006 or later, for study trips in language or business engineering (or equivalent) abroad.
Skandia Scholarship Fund
Awarded as financial aid during the years of study to up to three students in the five-year Forest Science programme who have pursued their studies with diligence and success and observed honourable conduct. The scholarship recipient must also be an active member of the student union. The scholarship may be received more than once.
Torsten Wangenberg Scholarship Fund
Awarded to one or more students in the five-year Forest Science programme as a grant for costs for study trips intended for completion of their education.
Albert N. Cedergren Travel Support Fund
Awarded to Master of Science in Forestry (120 or 60 credits) graduates from the Faculty of Forest Sciences for forest science studies in foreign countries with strong forest cultures.
Anna-Britta and Vadim Söderström Travel Scholarship Fund
One scholarship per year is awarded to a doctoral student, preferably in the subject area of silviculture. Alternatively, doctoral students in subjects related to silviculture will also be considered eligible. The scholarship is intended to encourage doctoral students, primarily in silviculture, to acquire more knowledge about how silviculture is conducted and what effects it has in countries outside the Nordic region. Priority is given to applicants providing a good explanation for how their doctoral work will be strengthened by receiving the scholarship.
Edlund Brothers Donation Fund
This fund was established by the brothers Georg Wilhelm Edlund and Walter Edlund in a will drawn up in 1966. Proceeds from the fund are to be used for research grants within Skogshögskolan and chiefly allocated to foreign visiting research fellows, primarily from Canada.
Grants can be awarded for research projects, but also for travel, accommodation and any moving costs for visiting research fellows from abroad. Applications are sent in by the person at SLU intending to invite visiting research fellows to the university.
Fund for Forest Science Research
The task of this fund is to support all research aimed at deepening understanding of the life of the forest, improving its care, increasing the economic returns of the country's forest capital, and enabling a more complete utilisation of the forest's products. Grants can be awarded for research projects, foreign study and conference trips and for public lectures in all areas of the field of forest research. Pure industrial forest research is not included, however.
Applications from younger researchers are prioritised over applications from older researchers, for both travel and projects. Grants can be awarded for research projects (up to SEK 120,000) and for study and conference trips abroad (up to SEK 25,000).
Wilhelm Smitt Scholarship Fund
Awarded as a scholarship to students in the five-year Forest Science programme who have demonstrated diligence, interest in and suitability for their profession.
Former Students Scholarship Fund
Three scholarships are awarded. Two students in the five-year Forest Science programme and one student in the three-year Forest Management programme, who 'have pursued their studies with diligence and success and observed honourable conduct'. The scholarship may be received more than once.
Tage Engströmer Scholarship Fund
Awarded to a student in the five-year Forest Science programme who has shown suitability for their profession. Relatives of the donors who meet this condition are given priority. The scholarship may be received more than once.
Professor Lars Tirén's 1958 Donation Foundation
The task of this foundation is to promote scientific research on the regeneration of forests in Sweden.
Arvid Lindman Reward Fund
Arvid Lindman Award: Each department's teachers/course coordinators and examiners at the Faculty of Forest Sciences are invited to nominate students to receive the scholarship from the Arvid Lindman Award for meritorious degree work completed during the previous year. The Arvid Lindman Medal: Minted in gold and awarded by the Skogshögskolan Board as a reward for exceptionally meritorious scientific research carried out at the university.

Magnus Nordquist Scholarship Fund
Awarded as a scholarship to students in the five-year Forest Science programme, primarily to those who have demonstrated an aptitude for studies in forest mathematics. Students born in Västernorrland or Norrbotten counties have priority.
Eugen Hemberg Scholarship Fund
This scholarship is awarded to degree programme students at the Faculty of Forest Sciences who have successfully conducted their studies and shown particular interest in one of the subjects silviculture or forest animal ecology (wildlife ecology/forest entomology or the fauna component of conservation biology), suitably for completion of degree work in one of the named subject areas.
Skogshögskolan Publication Fund
Education and outreach publications of various forms in well-defined projects within the Faculty of Forest Sciences.
