Applications should consist of a maximum 500 word statement on the purpose to which the award will be put. The award is intended to supplement, rather than wholly finance, a journey.

Eligible submissions will include proposals on any topic related to horticulture in its broadest sense. Plant science proposals are eligible provided they have a relevance to horticulture; i.e. the applicant’s work is on a horticultural crop (edible or ornamental) or the relevance of the work to horticultural crops is made clear. Applications will be judged on the statement only; CV, references, costings and other sponsors are not required.

Deadline for submissions: 18 April 2016
Deadline for travel: May – December 2016 
Date award winners will be notified: May 2016

Within six weeks of the completion of their Travel Plan, recipients must submit a report describing the work carried out with the aid of the award. The recipients will then each receive a £500 travel grant, a year’s Student Membership of SCI, and a year’s Eden Project Membership. 

Award winners will be invited to attend the Horticulture Group AGM in September if they have completed their travel plan.
