Scholarships From CANERS Foundation 2010

The CANERS Foundation Endowment for Research and Scholarship began in 1969. Perpetual Awards are the basis of the endowment. Awards may be started with a minimum of $2500 and increases to the award balance can be made at any time. Often awards are founded to honor a nursery industry professional, to provide a family legacy, in memorium, or for a variety of other reasons. CANERS has funded nearly $1 million in scholarships for students pursuing careers in horticulture. Annually the Scholarship Committee solicits for applications and meets to select the recipients.
