BioWorks is offering the “BioWorks IPM/Sustainable Practices Scholarship” scholarship. Sponsored through the American Floral Endowment (AFE), a non-for-profit organization that works to fund floriculture and environmental horticulture research and educational programs in the United States, the scholarship is designed to assist students pursuing a career in floriculture. Preference will be given to students interested in furthering the use of integrated pest management (IPM) or sustainable practices in the industry.
“This is the fifth year BioWorks has offered this scholarship in conjunction with AFE,” says Joe Gionta, BioWorks’ director of sales and marketing. “We strongly support furthering education in the floriculture and horticulture industries and make it a top priority to assist students working toward that goal.”
Selection will be based on sound academic performance and a grade point average of 3.0 (where 4.0 is equivalent to an A) or better. Applications for this scholarship can be found on the AFE website and must be submitted by May 1, 2012.
