Syngenta Flowers is offering two $7,500 scholarships to undergraduate, master’s or doctoral students who have shown high potential in the fields of plant breeding and ornamental horticulture through scholastic excellence and experience.

The Glenn Goldsmith Breeding Excellence Scholarship recognizes a student currently working toward a degree in plant breeding, and the Goldsmith Seeds Floriculture Business Advancement Scholarship will recognize a student currently working toward a degree in ornamental horticulture business.

“Syngenta is pleased to offer these scholarships to students who demonstrate a passion and commitment to this important industry,” says Scott Valentine, president of Syngenta Flowers, Inc. “We recognize this industry will need future leaders. By recognizing these students, it is our hope we can further empower their future and their ability to succeed in the ornamental horticulture industry.”

To apply, students must be either an undergraduate, master’s or doctoral candidate at an accredited four-year university during the 2013-14 academic school year, and carry a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.

Applicants must submit a cover letter and resume, a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s professor or academic advisor, a brief description of career aspirations and an essay between 1,000 and 1,500 words describing what “Bringing Plant Potential to Life” means to their career path.

The two selected scholarship recipients will be notified on June 28, 2013, and will be awarded their scholarships by Syngenta at the OFA Short Course trade show in Columbus, Ohio on July 14-16, 2013. Recipients do not need to be present in order to receive the scholarships.
