Did you know that WHS offers two scholarships each year for college students
(or college-bound high schoolers) who intend to study horticulture?
This year we are teaming up with the CNPS-Santa Clara Valley Chapter to offer a $1,500 scholarship with a native plant focus.
Our other scholarship remains at $1,000 for someone with a general horticulture interest.
Please encourage any student you know who might qualify to apply. The applications will be available on the WHS website. www.westernhort.org/scholarships.
