Mississippi Forestry Foundation

The Forestry Foundation (MFF) is a nonprofit, non-stock corporation established by MFA in 1964 to promote and carry out educational, literary, scientific, and charitable programs to better conserve, develop, and protect the forest and related natural resources of Mississippi for the best interest of this and future generations. MFF supports Project Learning Tree, Teachers Conservation Workshops, and other Youth Forestry Programs, and awards a scholarship to a student in the Mississippi State University College of Forest Resources.  

MFF's scholarship is an annual scholarship that is limited to juniors and seniors in any major at the MSU College of Forest Resources. Applicants also submit two letters of recommendation to confirm active participation in extracurricular school and community activities.



MFF also promotes statewide forest fire protection through a reward program for the arrest and conviction of timberland arsonists. MFF pays a $500 reward to persons providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of felons setting woods fires.
