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 Indiana arborist. The award consists of a scholarship award plaque and a check for $500.00. The recipient will be presented the award at the IAA Annual Conference luncheon, in Indianapolis.
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 have a cumulative grade of “C’ or better. Candidates are not limited to the Urban Forestry area. The selection committee consists of at least three (3) members of the IAA. Should the committee not be presented with any candidate that they feel is worthy, the award shall not be made for that year.
