The Oregon Nurseries Foundation (ONF) awards scholarships to students preparing for a career in ornamental horticulture and related fields. In all, 19 different awards — ranging from $500 to $1,500 — are sponsored by individuals and Oregon Association of Nurseries (OAN) chapters as a way to support the next generation of green industry professionals.
Applicants may be awarded more than one scholarship. Past recipients are encouraged to reapply. Applications for the 2017-18 school year must be postmarked by March 1, 2017.

The ONF Board generally meets in late April to award scholarships, and successful applicants are notified soon after.
