The Molpus Woodlands Group has established an annual scholarship within the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment to support students pursuing forestry degrees.
The scholarship reflects the shared interests of Auburn University and the Molpus Woodlands Group to attract a wide range of talented individuals to shape the next generation of professionals within the forestry industry.
As part of the selection process, individual consideration will be given to scholarship applicant’s socioeconomic and educational background, and/or experience in or a commitment to working with historically underrepresented groups or in diverse environments. Additional consideration will be given to students who are first generation college students and/or who reside in a highly rural county or underserved area as determined by Auburn’s Office of Enrollment Management.
Molpus, one of the oldest timber-related companies in the United States, operates under a vertically integrated business structure, employing in-house experts in various fields, including accounting, business, forestry, GIS, and legal. Currently overseeing over 1.7 million acres of timberland investments across 15 states, the Molpus Woodlands Group scholarship is reflective of the rich diversity of its business units.
This partnership between Molpus Woodlands Group and Auburn University marks an exciting opportunity for aspiring forestry professionals to pursue their passions and contribute to the growth and diversity of the industry.
