The Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources (FER) aims to provide students with academic merit or financial need with support to attend NC State. Our departmental scholarships operate independently from the university-wide merit scholarship program, the college-wide program and the various federal, state and private programs. To be considered for a departmental scholarship, students must be a current FER student or an accepted for admission as a full-time NC State undergraduate student in our Department in one of the following majors: Environmental Sciences (ES), Environmental Technology and Management (ETM), Forest Management (FOM), Natural Resources (NRE or NRP) or Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology (SFW, SFF or FWCB). Your first major of double majors must also be in FER.
The Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources offers different types of scholarships. To be eligible for the Academic Scholarship, applicants must: have a 3.75 GPA, as well as an SAT score of 1250 or an ACT score of 25 (if an incoming freshman); or have a 3.5 GPA if a current undergraduate or transfer student. Academic scholarships may be renewed for the minimum number of additional semesters required to complete the current major, but not more than three additional years, provided the recipient does not change majors and earns a total grade point average of 3.500 or better.
