Experience the Industry at Cultivate
What is the AmericanHort Scholars program?
This program sets students in horticulture on a path to success by exposing them to the breadth of the horticulture industry, its opportunities, and its leaders at Cultivate. Each year, 6 students are chosen for this beyond-the-classroom experience – giving insight and awareness of the industry, its supply chain, and where they might find a home for their passion
In other words, HortScholars will meet many, many people that:
- Can help with finding a fantastic job or internship
- Offer insights on the best ways to reach career goals
- Will tell funny stories about stupid things they did early in their career (and that you can learn from)
- Provide lots of realistic advice that is actually useful
Who is eligible?
The AmericanHort Scholars program is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are attending 2- and 4-year colleges and universities. (If you graduate just before the program starts in July, that’s okay). Check out the program requirements.
