Scholarships are available to students who enroll in the traditional 8-week program in Memphis, TN, and are not employed in the hardwood lumber industry at the time of enrollment. ITSEF scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academic record, and leadership qualities.  Scholarships that are approved by ITSEF are reimbursed up to the amount of $4,060. All scholarship applications must be submitted no later than ten (10) days before the course start date to be considered.
