Since 2008 BioWorks has had the privilege of participating in the American Floral Endowment Scholarship Program by offering the “BioWorks IPM/Sustainable Practices Scholarship.” AFE, founded in 1961, is the leading non-for-profit 501© (3) funding source for floricultural/environmental horticulture research and educational programs in the United States. The endowment is supported by more than 1,000 companies and individuals throughout the industry, including BioWorks.
Scholarship Criteria
The BioWorks IPM/Sustainable Practices Scholarship is intended for sophomore, junior, or senior students pursuing a career in floriculture. Students are selected on the basis of their sound academic performance and a grade point average of 3.0 or better. While it is not mandatory, it is strongly desired that the student be interested in furthering the use of Integrated Pest Management ("IPM") or Sustainable practices and preference will be given in this area. BioWorks hopes to encourage young people to pursue a career in floriculture or horticulture and will support those pursuits with the scholarship.
