Shinoda Foundation Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 5
Award Deadline: March 30, 2021

Each year, scholarships are awarded by the Foundation to undergraduate students specializing in some phase of FLORICULTURE. The object of the awards is to encourage good students to enter the domestic floriculture field; therefore, applicants should intend to work in some phase of COMMERCIAL FLORICULTURE in the United States after graduation.

A) The definition of Floriculture is: The cultivation of flowers, especially to be cut and sold, including flowering plants and foliage plants, cut flowers, greens, bedding plants (annual and perennial) and hanging baskets.

B) To be eligible, applicants must attend their present institution or another providing accredited floriculture course work during the next academic school year. Since specialization might not occur until later in four-year schools, preferences will be given to upper division applicants.

C) In evaluating each candidate, grades are important. However, other factors are considered such as need, work status, character, and intent. The application, letters of recommendation and transcripts must be received no later than March 30 in order to be eligible for consideration.

D) This scholarship is an outright grant. No interest payments or repayments of principal are required. It is hoped, however, that recipients will be inclined within limits of their ability, to make contributions to the Foundation for the benefit of prospective students in the future.
