TLA scholarships

The TLA has been awarding scholarships for over 33 years. We currently have two types of scholarships:

  • Trades Scholarships: These awards are for people training in the trades who plan to work in BC's forest industry and are administered by the TLA's Education Committ
  • Scaling Scholarships: These awards are for people who have taken a coastal scaling course, successfully written the coastal scaling exam and have been issue their scaling license. These awards are administered by the TLA's Education Committee.
    • ​The next North Island College log scaling course begins in February. Click here for more info. 
    • The next BC Metric Log Scaling course begins on February 15, 2019. Click here for more info. 
  • Forestry Scholarships: These scholarships are at UBC, VIU, and BCIT and students must apply through their program. The scholarships are administrated by each school based on criteria set by the TLA.
    • Find out more about these scholarships at UBC and VIU's websites.

We couldn’t support these scholarships without the support of our members who donate items to the TLA’s Donor Auction, which takes place annually at the TLA convention and trade show, or without the support of the TLA members who purchase the items at the auction.  At the 2016 convention, we raised $74,315 through the auction for the TLA Forestry Education Fund. This money goes to support ongoing forestry edcuation program and these important scholarships.
