Up to £3,000 to fund a placement abroad at a tree nursery to learn about tree production. This also includes the opportunity for a work placement at Majestic Trees, which could become a permanent position.
Who should apply?
A student who has completed or is completing their studies in commercial horticulture, and has a passion for trees. Students that have previously worked on a tree nursery or studied courses more closely linked to tree production are especially encouraged to apply.
Number of scholarships available?
One or more per year.
Who is the sponsor?
Majestic Trees, a leading tree nursery. The owners of Majestic Trees, Steve and Janet McCurdy, first met in California whilst Steve was an exchange student in 1979/80 sponsored by the UK nursery, Thomas Rochford in conjunction with the Future Farmers of America.
This year’s work experience opportunity changed his life, and opened his eyes to the bigger world and the endless possibilities. In fact, it taught Steve to think anything is possible and changed his business thinking and the way he now runs Majestic Trees. It is for this reason that Majestic Trees would like to provide this sponsored scholarship for someone passionate about tree production.
When to apply?
Between October 2018 and January 2019.
