In recognition of the need to encourage creative young talent to pursue careers in floriculture, the Joseph Shinoda Memorial Scholarship Foundation was established. A non-profit organization, its sole purpose is to provide scholarship assistance to deserving students who have chosen to prepare for careers in the flower industry. It is only through education that the interests and potential of young people can be developed in order to meet the expanding demands of the floral industry.
Each year, scholarships are awarded by the Foundation to undergraduate students specializing in some phase of floriculture. The object of the awards is to encourage good students to enter the domestic floriculture field; therefore, applicants should intend to work in some phase of commercial floriculture in the United States after graduation.
