Nurturing the Seeds for a Healthy Future

August 21, 2003 - 11:59

If you had a great intern this summer -- one you think
worthy of notice -- listen up. GPN and Nexus have the perfect way to
reward that hard-working up-and-comer.

Applications for the 5th Annual GPN/Nexus Intern Scholarship
are being accepted now through October 15, 2003. The winner will appear on the
cover of GPN’s January 2004 issue as well as in a feature article about
them and their experiences as an intern. Along with the publicity, your intern
will probably be interested in the scholarship check for $3,000.

To be considered, applicants must meet the following
requirements: enrollment in a 4-year, accredited university during the
2002-2003 and 2003-2004 school years; working on an undergraduate degree in a
branch of floriculture; and internship in a greenhouse during the summer of
2003. Applicants who meet these requirements should send a cover letter
requesting consideration for the scholarship and telling what university they
attend; a letter from their academic advisor recommending the applicant and attesting
to enrollment; and a minimum 1,000-word essay that describes their intern
experience, including who they interned for and what their responsibilities
were. Essays will be judged by a panel of industry experts on the quality of
the experience, knowledge gained and the applicant’s ability to describe
the experience. All applications should be mailed to:
