The Western Colorado Horticultural Society (WCHS) funds scholarships to deserving students from Western Colorado who are interested in pursuing a career in a horticulture related industry. A single scholarship may be awarded annually to assist a student who the WCHS board feels will stay within the industry and be a contributor and/or leader of the farming future. The candidate must be accepted and/or enrolled in a horticultural related degree or certificate program, have a permanent residence within Colorado and demonstrate his/her scholastic ability.
This scholarship is available to high school seniors and college students pursuing continuing education through accredited institutions, who are seeking careers in horticulture or in closely related fields of study within the horticulture industry. Applications must be printed legibly, or preferably typed. Adobe Reader may be used if the scholarship application is downloaded from www.coloradofruits.org. Use additional pages if necessary to complete. A current transcript should be submitted with each application. An additional letter of recommendation from teachers, facility advisors, or current employers may also be submitted for consideration.
