The final three are studying geography (Sabrina Allard), biology (Camille Bédard) and wood engineering (Jean-Sébastien Lavoie).

The company says that training in these fields will set up the students for success in the forest products sector, should they choose to pursue a career in the industry.

Each spring, Resolute also provides scholarships for graduate students pursuing Master’s or PhD degrees in fields pertaining to forestry or wood products.

In 2019, Resolute donated funds for scholarships, research grants, buildings and other needs totalling close to $402,000.
