US: New videos promote AFE's Ball internship program

AFE has announced the release of three new videos promoting the Vic & Margaret Ball Intern Scholarship Program.

This paid internship program gives students, who are studying floriculture or horticulture at a college or university, the opportunity to train for three, four or six months at a commercial production greenhouse or nursery.

Students will gain hands-on experience and put their classroom knowledge to work.

The student video shares students’ successful internship experiences and testimonials on how the program helped them in their careers.

The employer video encourages companies to participate in the program by becoming a host employer. This video explains the benefits of hosting an intern, and shows how AFE helps companies train the next generation of industry leaders.

The parent video explains to parents what an internship can do for their children’s future. They will learn more about the program and how AFE provides students with valuable experiences.

In 1992, Vic and Margaret Ball made a generous donation to AFE to establish the Vic & Margaret Ball Intern Scholarship Program to help ensure successful future generations of horticulture professionals.

Students must apply for these internships by the March 1 or October 1 deadline, but interested companies can apply anytime to become a host employer.
