HENNEPIN TECH AWARDED AMERICAN FLORAL ENDOWMENT GRANT FOR STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP
Hennepin Technical College announced that it has been awarded a grant from the American Floral Endowment James and Helen Phillip Scholarship Fund. The $3,000 grant for the spring semester will fund $1000 scholarships for three students enrolled full-time in HTC’s floral design program.
“Scholarships make a real difference to our students,” said Jeanne Morphew, director of development and alumni relations at HTC. “We’re grateful for support from the American Floral Endowment, and we hope this will be an ongoing relationship that provides scholarship funds to help students prepare for a successful career in retail floral design and operations.” HTC was one of six schools to receive scholarship funds from the American Floral Endowment.
Many successful flower shops in Minnesota are owned or managed by graduates of HTC's floral design program, which offers an associate of applied science (A.A.S.) degree in Greenhouse Production and Professional Floral Design, as well as a Professional Floral Designer diploma.
The American Floral Endowment (www.endowment.org) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to the advancement of education and science in the fields of floriculture and environmental horticulture through funding research and financing scholarships and educational opportunities.
