AmericanHort HortScholars 2020 Application


Welcome to the AmericanHort HortScholars 2020 Application

The HortScholars program aims to create a path to success for students in horticulture by exposing them to the breadth of the horticulture industry, its opportunities, and its leaders at AmericanHort’s premier trade show - Cultivate. 

Applications to the HortScholar program will be reviewed by each member of the AmericanHort GenerationNext Community. From the initial pool, twelve finalists will be chosen to provide a short video on why they should be chosen as a HortScholar. After reviewing the video, the six 2020 HortScholars will be announced in May.
