AFE Opens Scholarships
Floriculture and horticulture college students now have the chance to apply for more than 20 different scholarships through the American Floral Endowment (AFE). The deadline is May 1 to submit applications for sophomore through senior students, as well as graduate students. AFE encourages students to apply for scholarships early. 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.” Descriptions of each scholarship offered, along with the undergraduate and graduate applications and requirements, are available online. Applications and supporting materials must be received by the May 1 deadline. To apply online and read about AFE’s 2015 scholarship recipients, visit www.endowment.org.
