Dümmen Orange has launched the search for candidates in the second year of The Dr. P. Allen Hammer Scholarship. Named for Dr. P. Allen Hammer in acknowledgement for the contributions he’s made to the horticulture industry throughout his career, the scholarship is intended to extend Dr. Hammer’s legacy by supporting the next generation of students toward the completion of their horticulture-related academic pursuits.

The $5,000 scholarship is awarded annually to an undergraduate student studying horticulture or floriculture. The recipient will be announced in July during Cultivate’18. Candidates must demonstrate accomplishments in horticulture in one of the following areas: academic achievement, community involvement or leadership.

Applications for the 2018 award are due on June 15. More information and the scholarship application can be found under the “About Us” tab at GT
