Travel scholarship for Young Gardeners

For young gardeners are also funds available in 2013 - an application of this is possible at any time. (here the October 15 deadline does not apply!)

The Foundation offers travel grants to students Botanical Gardens or for freshly learned gardener Botanical Gardens. These scholarships can be applied outside of our otherwise applicable time limit, since we assume that arise spontaneously some plans in teaching or shortly thereafter.

Scholarship for Young Gardeners
A new project of our foundation: In the future we will be selected each year for young gardeners who have completed their education at a botanical garden, a scholarship offer as a prize in the amount of 500 euros. The date of application for this scholarship does NOT apply. Applications are accepted at any time for this, because we want to respond flexibly to the young gardeners here.
