Ten students have received $10,000 in scholarships from the Pacific Forest Foundation (PFF), the educational arm of the Pacific Logging Congress. Eight of the students are attending Oregon State University and two are attending University of Idaho. This is the second year scholarships were given.
One of this year’s scholarship recipients is 18-year-old Nicholas Swanson. He’s studying Forest/Civil Engineering at Oregon State University. He said his goal is to become a forest engineer.
“This scholarship will truly be helpful with my education,” Nicholas says. “Since the price of college keeps going up I am truly grateful to get this scholarship and will use it to help with tuition and books.”
