Support UK Forestry and Natural Resources

Many forestry students, both undergraduate and graduate, at the University of Kentucky are supported by funds generated through scholarships, endowments, and other gifts. Our donors play a very important role in providing educational opportunities for students that may not otherwise be able to attend college or pursue a graduate degree.

If you are considering a gift to support our students or programs, please review the following options. Use these fund names when donating so the funds go to the appropriate account. If you need additional information on these scholarships, contact Jeff Stringer, Chair of the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources.
