Hey, students—any of you interested in some scholarship money to help offset the cost of your virtual education this fall (just kidding, I hope)? The Horticultural Research Institute (HRI) is pleased to announce it’s accepting scholarship applications for the 2020-2021 school year.

These scholarships are made possible by seven HRI endowment funds that aid students who’re seeking a lifelong career in horticulture. HRI and its donor firms consider graduating students in horticulture to be the lifeblood of the green industry.

• The Timothy S. and Palmer W. Bigelow Jr. Scholarship

• The Usrey Family Scholarship

• The Bryan A. Champion Memorial Scholarship

• The Susie & Bruce Usrey Scholarship
