US: Applications for paid floriculture internships due October 1

Applications are now being accepted for the American Floral Endowment (AFE)'s Vic & Margaret Ball Intern Scholarship Program and Mosmiller Intern Scholarship Program.

AFE funds paid internships for floriculture and environmental horticulture students each year, and the next application deadline is October 1. Students receive a scholarship upon successful completion of their internships.

The Vic & Margaret Ball Intern Scholarship Program was made possible through a generous gift from Vic & Margaret Ball and allows students to gain experience in commercial production. The program offers paid internships in three, four or six month durations and provides scholarships of up to $6,000.

Ashley Brinegar, a former Ball intern who worked at Welby Gardens in Denver, Colo., was hired after graduating from Texas A&M University and now works there as a grower.

Honoring the late Colonel and Mrs. Walter E. Mosmiller, Jr., the Mosmiller Intern Scholarship Program provides students pursuing a career in retail or wholesale operations with internship experience. The program offers paid internships in 10-16 week durations and provides scholarships of $2,000.

Eligibility Requirements:
  • Full-time, undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens.
  • Must be enrolled in a floriculture/environmental horticulture program at a two- or four-year college or university in the U.S.
  • Must maintain a "C" or better GPA.
