The OFA Scholars Program was designed to expose students to facets of the floriculture industry they would not typically experience in their regular academic coursework. the program’s focus on professional development includes attending education sessions, networking and working with industry mentors at the OFA Short Course in Columbus, Ohio. Last year’s OFA Scholars met with Anna Ball and Marvin Miller of Ball Horticultural Company; Tom Smith and Dennis Crum of Four Star Greenhouse; and Bridget Behe of Michigan State University.

Applications for the 2011 program will be accepted beginning in November. For more information on OFA, the Generation Next Committee, the Scholars Program or Short Course, visit or call (614) 487-1117.
