The student must currently be enrolled in good standing and carry a full-time complement of courses at the time of application and during the semesters that the scholarship is granted
    Applicants must be a resident of one of the six New England states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Applicants must have senior standing in a two-year curriculum (having completed the first year), junior standing in a four-year curriculum (having completed the first two years), or a graduate student standing. Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 2.25 based on a scale of 4.0, or 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 for a graduate student. Preference will be given to an applicant who plans to work in any aspect of the nursery industry following graduation, including the desire to own one's own business.
