Davey Awards Arbor Grant Scholarships to 50 Students

Posted: March 5, 2018

Kent, Ohio – The Davey Foundation has awarded 50 Arbor Grant scholarships to students pursuing a career in the green industry.

For over 25 years, Davey has awarded the merit-based scholarships of up to $1,000 to green industry students each year. A total $50,000 was awarded this year, bringing the total awards since the program’s inception to approximately $675,000.

To be eligible for an Arbor Grant scholarship, students must be enrolled in a two- or four-year program that focuses on forestry, urban forestry, arboriculture or another green industry field.

“The Arbor Grant Scholarship is a great way for students to get a bit of financial assistance with the degree they are working so hard for, but it’s also a great tradition for us as a company to invest in our future work force and show our support to the minds that will ultimately shape this industry one day,” said Kathy Doody, director of recruiting and employee development.

This year’s recipients range from California to New York, and many of the recipients interned with the Davey company.
