The American Floral Endowment (AFE) is now accepting applications for our nearly 30 Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships through a brand-new online platform. This new platform will increase ease for both students and reviewers creating a shorter path to funding.
With responsive features, upload options, automatic save, and tracking for references, students can complete and review their applications with confidence all in one place.
“AFE takes great pride in providing funding for our industry’s future leaders and innovators. This platform will provide them a more convenient space to put their best foot forward. We hope that streamlining our platform to keep up with tech advancements will encourage more students to apply and take interest in all that the floral industry has to offer,” said AFE Education Committee Chairman Greg Royer of Royer’s Flowers.
