HortScholar Scholarship

Deadline:
March 1, 2022
Amount:
$1,500

Overview

The AmericanHort Scholars program is not a traditional scholarship where you receive money toward your tuition. But you can think of it as a scholarship worth $1,500 to attend Cultivate’22 (the largest all-industry event in North America). Many employers (especially those in the horticulture field) view the AmericanHort Scholars Program as a very beneficial opportunity and are willing to give you time off.

Scholars do not receive monetary compensation for their participation. They do receive a free one-year AmericanHort membership, an All-Access Pass to Cultivate’22 (over $200 value), free meals ($500+), and a free place to stay ($800+).

No, official transcripts are not required. You will need to submit a resume and two letters of recommendation. Your resume should include work experience, club, and extra-curricular involvements, volunteer experience, and any awards or recognitions you have received.
