Molpus Annual Scholarship Program

Molpus has a partnership with ten universities to help bring further diversity to the forestry management profession, targeting students in underrepresented populations within certain majors with a preference to support financial need. The ten universities partnering with the program are Auburn University, Jackson State University, Louisiana State University, Michigan Technical University, Mississippi State University, Stephen F. Austin University, the University of Georgia, the University of Idaho, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Southern Mississippi. These universities are located in some of the country’s most forested states, with rich histories and strong forest communities. The scholarships are available to students in forestry, GIS, paralegal studies, and business.

The Dick Molpus Foundation

Molpus Founder and Chairman Dick Molpus has a core belief in the power of education. Dick Molpus and his family are advocates of public education and provide financial support to many institutions annually through The Dick Molpus Foundation, which was established in 2008.

To encourage interest in forestry among underrepresented populations, the Foundation established an annual forestry scholarship at MSU in 2013 for students from underrepresented populations. These scholarships also provide for a summer internship with our company.

The Foundation has also pledged $1 million to Mississippi State University with a goal to increase the recruitment, retention and advancement of students, faculty and staff from historically underrepresented populations including minorities, women, and first-generation college students.
