Scholarship Description

Technical or 2-Year Post-Secondary Institution Scholarships -  Proven Winners will award five $2,000 scholarships annually.

Many horticulture students begin their post-secondary schooling at 2-year or vocational technology schools as a way to enter the work force sooner. Since horticulture tends to be a very hands-on career with much knowledge gained through work experience, this is an excellent way to break into the industry. We are proud to support five exemplary students who have chosen this route for their education.
