Forest is supporting the following scholarships and awards with tuition reduction, expense reimbursement, and direct student awards in the 2013-2014 academic year. The categories, size and mode of dispersal of funds varies from year to year based on the total available funds, program objectives, as well the number and quality of applications. Award selection and amount reflect the carefully considered judgement of the FEETS Committee of applications based on the selection criteria for each award category. Every year selecting these awards is a difficult process because we have so many promising and deserving students.
