Our scholarships support future horticulturists so that the UK’s ornamental horticultural industry can continue to grow. At £1,000 or more, one of our scholarships can really boost your opportunities.
Scholarship Season is open from September to January every year. We make the application process as straight forward as possible and invite you to tell us about your passion for plants and goals for the future. We advise candidates to highlight your talent, as evidenced by grades achieved, tutor assessments and work experience so far in your career.
Scholarships are open to all students completing horticulture related courses in the UK, and some also support those who are in the early days of their horticultural career. Student applicants must be attending, or enrolled to attend college, university or a similar educational establishment on a full or part time basis with a view to seeking permanent full time employment in commercial or production ornamental horticulture when finishing your course.
Working applicants should be employed in production ornamental horticulture in the UK. The tutor or employer of students shortlisted for a scholarship selection may be contacted by the foundation for a reference.
Over £52,000 worth of scholarships has been awarded in the past five years to students studying at 12 UK colleges.
