Prizes

Prizes are awards in the form of cash, books, or medals valued at less than $500. They are normally awarded on the basis of academic achievement, similar to a scholarship, but more often reflect your outstanding citizenship and the overall contribution you make to the Faculty of Forestry. Often they are awarded to the student who earned the highest grade in a specific course.
