US: More than $35,000 awarded in AFE 2016 scholarships

The American Floral Endowment (AFE) has awarded seventeen students in 2016 with scholarships totaling more than $35,000.

"Thanks to the generosity of donors, AFE is able to distribute more than 20 scholarships each year to deserving and well-qualified students. These students are worthy of our recognition and support," said Dwight Larimer, AFE Chairman-Elect and Education Committee Chair.

"Each of the scholarship recipients give us a glimpse of our industry's bright future, and I believe that all of the applicants are passionate leaders who will help the industry progress."

More than 65 applications were received for this scholarship cycle, down slightly from last year.

AFE awards scholarships annually, and applications are due by May 1 of each year.
