HortScholars spend seven days in Columbus, Ohio attending and volunteering at Cultivate'20 - the horticulture industry's premier event.
The program will offer a beyond-the-classroom experience - insight and awareness of the industry, a chance to present on a topic of their expertise, and professional development via education sessions, networking, and exclusive meetings with industry leaders. HortScholars also receive an all-access pass to Cultivate’20 and a one-year student membership with AmericanHort.
Oh, and did we mention that AmericanHort covers the costs?*
