The Colegrave Seabrook Foundation, which supports students studying Horticulture at UK colleges and universities, announces the opening of the application season for scholarships.
Students, who need some financial support to help with costs of living, purchase of course materials, fees, travel costs or something as specific as the purchase of a new laptop, will find there is probably a scholarship that applies to their situation.
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," says the Foundation.
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.
Scholarship values vary from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds and applications are straight forward to make.
Organisations supporting the scholarships
- Blue Diamond, the inspirational home, garden and living centres, with outlets across the UK;
- Ball Horticulture, the UK’s leading wholesale distributor of seed and plants to commercial growers and local authorities;
- Majestic Trees, the award winning grower specialising in the supply and planting of mature and character trees;
- British Protected Ornamentals Association [BPOA], representing the UK bedding & pot plant industry
Full details are on the Foundation website along with important information relating to the scholarships which are available to both part or full time students.
Applications can be submitted between now and the 31st of January 2023 for awards which will be made in March 2023.
