The Colegrave Seabrook Foundation, which support students studying Horticulture at UK colleges and universities, has announced the opening of the application season for scholarships.
The scheme offers financial support to students to help with costs of living, purchase of course materials, fees, travel costs or something specific such as the purchase of a new laptop.
To be eligible for consideration and successful in being granted a scholarship, students need to demonstrate their passion for horticulture and their commitment to making a career within the industry through their application. In addition to the basic contact details, some background information on your college, course and what interests you in the particular branch of horticulture you have chosen to study is required.
The wide variety of scholarships cover sectors including plant science, research, environmental study and technical research as well as more general horticultural studies. There are also scholarships specific to students interested in bedding and ornamental plant production or specialist tree production with Majestic Trees.
Scholarships values vary from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds and applications are straight forward to make. A number of organisations support scholarships, such as:
- Blue Diamond garden centres
- Ball Horticulture
- Majestic Trees
- British Protected Ornamentals Association [BPOA]
Applications can be submitted between now and January 31 2023 for awards which will be made in March 2023.
