New Scholarship Available for Students Studying Bulbs
Last week, Dig. Drop. Done., the North American authority on flower bulbs, announced that the North American Flower Bulb Wholesalers Association (NAFWA) has started accepting applications for the Karl Schroff Memorial Scholarship.
The $3,000 scholarship(s) is for the 2012-2013 academic year and will be awarded this July. Any college student studying flower bulbs or horticulture is invited to apply by July 1.
The NAFWA scholarship is named for Karl Schroff, a customs broker who for more than 50 years helped numerous flower bulb companies get their products into the United States.
Schroff died in 2003. “NAFWA is proud to offer this scholarship to honor the legacy of Karl Schroff, an incredible person who was always looking out for others and cared deeply about the success and longevity of the flower bulb industry,” said Jack DeVroomen, NAFWA board member and owner of a Dig.Drop.Done.
