Student Conference Scholarships

The IPPS Eastern Region offers scholarships for qualifying students to cover registration costs for Annual Conferences, generally held in the fall. Students may apply for a scholarship to attend for 1,2,3 or all 4 days of the event. 

The annual conference is a fantastic opportunity to network and build invaluable relationships with the best in the business from across the country. The four day conference consists of behind-the-scenes-tours to local nurseries and botanic gardens as well as an educational session of thought-provoking talks by industry experts and business professionals. A poster session, plant auctions and time to socialize round out the event.

A generous number of student scholarships are available. The estimated value of the scholarships varies from $75 to $500 depending on the length of attendance. This is not a cash award but a complimentary registration. Students are responsible for their own travel and overnight accommodations.

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Candidate must be enrolled in a horticulture or other plant-related program of study and be an active student at the time of the conference.
  • Candidate must fill out the application in its entirety, including a faculty reference.
  • Candidate must be a Student Member of the IPPS Eastern Region. Student membership is free - click HERE to join. IPPS members receive a monthly electronic newsletter plus unlimited downloads from the Combined Proceedings of our worldwide annual conferences.
