The 20-year-old, who is a first year Higher National Diploma (HND) student, won the award by impressing the judges with a written submission and in an interview.
Wyevale Nurseries sales and marketing director Adam Dunnett said: "We would like to congratulate Kyle on winning the award. It was designed to encourage a student towards a career in nursery stock production by assisting with a practical placement at a nursery in the Netherlands.
"Kyle has previous practical experience from working at Pennells Nursery in Lincoln and showed an extreme interest and flair for the opportunity offered.
"The Peter Williamson Travel Award was started in memory of Wyevale Nurseries former owner and chairman, Peter Williamson, who very sadly passed away in 2011.
"Annually the award is presented to a student at Pershore College in Worcestershire, which was Peter’s own seat of learning in the 1960’s. The award subsidises and organises for the successful applicant to do a period of work in the Netherlands during the college summer vacation, as Peter also did more than 40 years ago."
Ross will be working for six weeks during the summer at Ruud van der Werf Nurseries, Boskoop, which is a specialist grower of Clematis and Magnolia. He was presented with £500 from Wyevale Nurseries to help pay for his travel costs.
He said: "I can’t believe I have won this award. I am so excited to work at Ruud van der Werf Nurseries. It will be a great learning experience for me. I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Wyevale Nurseries for giving me this opportunity."
The award was first presented to Ben Gregory, who was a second year horticulture degree student at Pershore, in 2012. He worked at Poppelaars Nurseries in the Netherlands in 2012. Ben is now a Management Trainee at Wyevale Nurseries.
Meanwhile, 22 members of staff at Wyevale Nurseries have raised £4,500 for Greenfingers charity by taking part in a 30-mile sponsored walk of the Mortimer Trail on June 7.
