At BioWorks, we’re preparing the world for the next generation who will follow in our footsteps. We feel strongly that the younger generation can use all the support we can offer. Which is why we’ve chosen to put our support behind the American Floral Endowment.
Founded in 1961, the AFE is the leading non-for-profit 501© (3) funding source for floricultural/environmental horticulture research and educational programs in the U.S. It’s supported by more than 1,000 companies and individuals throughout the industry, including BioWorks. Students are selected based on exemplary academic performance and a grade point average of 3.0 or better, with the ideal winning student showing a passion for the use of IPM or other sustainable practices.
The application deadline for a scholarship is May 1st of each year. After evaluation, the scholarship is awarded at the end of July/Early August.
