The deadline is May 1, 2016 to submit applications for sophomore through senior students, as well as graduate students.
AFE encourages students to apply for scholarships early, as the need for financial assistance in floriculture and environmental horticulture programs is great. In 2015, AFE awarded more than $37,000 in scholarships.
“It’s our primary function at the Endowment to award scholarships to students to help in their journey of becoming industry leaders,” AFE Executive Director Debi Aker said.
“We understand the financial burden students face and know that an investment in their education is an investment in the future of the industry.”
