Timothy Bigelow and Palmer W Bigelow Jr Scholarships

The Timothy Bigelow and Palmer W. Bigelow, Jr. Scholarship was created in 1988 by the Palmer W. Bigelow family (Bigelow Nurseries in Northboro, MA) to aid students from New England who are seeking a career in horticulture. The scholarship is dedicated to one of the family's children, the late Timothy Bigelow and to Palmer W. ("Bill") Bigelow, who died in 1997.
