Over 75% of accepted MFC students receive admission scholarships.

Applicants to the Master of Forest Conservation (MFC) program who submit a complete application by February 28, 2018 will receive preferential scholarship consideration.  Complete applications include the application form and all supporting documents (transcripts, letter of interest, resume and 3 referee reports). Completed applications received after February 28, 2018, but prior to the final deadline of April 30, 2018, will also receive scholarship consideration.

In-course awards are available throughout the duration of the program, and are awarded based on academic merit. No application is necessary for admissions scholarships or in-course awards.  Eligible students are automatically access for need-based funding in the fall session of each academic year, and can apply for need-based OSOTF awards in the winter session of each academic year.

Prospective MFC candidates should investigate and pursue all possible sources of funding for their proposed program as departmental funding is not available as “primary support” for the MFC program.
