BRATTLEBORO -- The Woodland Owners Association of Windham County is offering two $1,500 scholarships for the 2013-2014 academic year. Eligible applicants must be Windham County residents.

The scholarship program is open to high school seniors, high school graduates, or college sophomores, juniors or seniors enrolled in a two- or four-year program in forestry or an allied field, such as wildlife management with coursework and goals directly related to forest management.

For the purpose of these scholarships, the association does not consider more general programs (e.g., agriculture, botany, turf management, or environmental science) as allied fields unless the applicant clearly demonstrates how his or her chosen field focuses on forest management.

Applicants should contact their high school guidance counselor for applications or request an application from Woodland Owners Association, Inc., 11 University Way, Suite 4, Brattleboro, VT 05301.

The deadline for the scholarship application is Jan. 31.
