Only applicants with cumulative GPAs of 3.2/4.0 or higher are eligible for consideration for Department of Forestry & Natural Resources funding. The number of funding lines vary from semester to semester. Available funding lines are determined by the number of funding lines made available by students who have completed MS and Ph.D. programs under FNR funding minus the number of current FNR students who need funding extensions. The Graduate Committee members make the initial funding decisions. The Head of the Department of Forestry & Natural Resources makes the final FNR funding decisions.
