Students interested in studying horticulture at the college level are eligible for scholarships being made available by the Oregon Nurseries Foundation.
The various scholarship awards are sponsored by individuals as well as OAN chapters, as a way to support the next generation of green industry professionals. High school graduates who will attend college in the fall, returning college students, and college graduates who will conduct research projects are all eligible for the funds.
Information on the scholarships available and the eligibility requirements can be viewed at http://scholarship.oan.org. A flier (PDF) and the application (PDF) also can be downloaded.
To be considered, completed applications must be brought to the OAN office, or mailed with a postmark, no later than April 1, 2010. Awards will be announced early in the summer. For more information, contact the Oregon Association of Nurseries at 503-682-5089 or email@example.com.
