The David J. Cartwright Memorial Scholarship was established by the ASFWB in 1991, following the untimely death in a vehicle accident of David J. Cartwright in October 1990. Dave was a member and strong supporter of the ASFWB for many years and contributed to wildlife management in Atlantic Canada as Furbearer Biologist with the NB Department of Natural Resources & Energy.
The 1-year Scholarship is awarded annually and is open to full-time students on theFredericton campus of the University of New Brunswick (UNB) entering the final year of Forestry (Wildlife Option) or Science (Biology Option).

The Scholarship is awarded by UNB on the recommendation of the Faculty of Forestry and the Faculty of Science. The ASFWB serves as donor of the Scholarship, which is variable in the amount awarded.
