Scholarships for Horticulture Majors

As the focus on food safety and sustainability increases, earning a horticulture degree can open up a wide range of career possibilities. Graduates find employment in areas where they can manage urban landscapes, improve the quality and nutritional value of crops or run nurseries and garden centers. Due to growing interest in this field, numerous scholarships have been created to assist students fund their horticulture studies. Some of these scholarships are open to all horticulture majors, while others require students to focus on a specific specialty, such as organic farming, fruit or nut farming or nursery operation. Applicants should be prepared to submit letters of recommendation and an essay. Many scholarships for horticulture majors carry a minimum GPA requirement, and financial need may also be a factor.
