Timothy S. and Palmer W. Bigelow, Jr. Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $3,000
Awards Available: 1

The Timothy S. and Palmer W. Bigelow, Jr. Scholarship was created in 1988 by the Bigelow family to aid students from New England who are seeking a career in horticulture. The scholarship was dedicated initially to one of the family's children, the late Timothy Bigelow. At Palmer W. "Bill" Bigelow's death, the name of its creator was added.

The Bigelow family considers student scholarships the most important commitment the horticultural industry can make to ensure the growth and development of the nursery and landscape industry.

One scholarship up to $3000 is available for the 2020-2021 school year
