Each year the Indiana Arborist Association (IAA) awards the IAA- Ramsey Award to a Purdue University student who has a professional interest in some aspect of urban forestry. The IAA makes the award in memory of Paul Ramsey, who was an outstanding professional arborist in Indiana. The award consists of a scholarship award plaque and $1,000.00. The recipient will be presented the award at the IAA Annual Conference luncheon, in Indianapolis, as well as the Forestry and Natural Resources Annual Spring Awards Program at Purdue University.
Candidates for this award should be students in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources or Horticulture at Purdue University and have completed their sophomore year and be in good academic standing. Candidates are not limited to the Urban Forestry area and may be of related science. The selection committee consists of at least three (3) members of the IAA and review applications the last week of November.
