AOL offers scholarships for high school seniors and current college students seeking a degree from a four year college of forestry accredited by the Society of American Foresters. These scholarships are available to children and grandchildren of AOL members and to others who wish to pursue a career in a forestry-related field such as Forest Management, Forest Engineering or Wood Science. You do not have to be related to a member of AOL to apply for these scholarships. Successful candidates will receive $1,500 per year, renewable for up to four years for a total of $6,000, subject to student maintaining annual qualification requirements.
For children of AOL regular and cooperative members, we also offer additional scholarship opportunities. High school seniors and current college students who wish to pursue a business degree from a four-year college may apply for a $1,500 scholarship, renewable for up to four years, or $6,000.
Children of AOL regular or cooperative members who wish to attend a community college or vocational school to pursue a career associated with the logging industry may apply for a scholarship that provides $750 per year for qualified candidates. A qualified career path will be determined by the AOL Scholarship Committee.
