Since 1990 the NEC-ISA has awarded scholarships to students pursuing an education in
field of study dedicated to plant material-oriented fields. The purpose of the awards is
threefold: to help promote interest in shade and ornamental trees, to recognize scholarly
endeavors, and to assist in financial aid.

The New England Chapter grants two scholarship awards of $1,500.00.  Each recipient
will receive $1,500 toward their educational expenses.  We encourage recipients of our
scholarship to be involved within the profession of arboriculture.  The NEC-ISA also
provides recipients with a full conference registration, one night lodging, and two
complimentary banquet tickets for an accompanying guest.

    England Chapter. They will receive an electronic version of our quarterly newsletter.
