LIFGA SCHOLARSHIP APPLICANTS
The LIFGA established a scholarship fund with the American Floral Endowment in 2010 after fund raising for more than 12 years. This scholarship is intended for students in the Long Island/New York area studying ornamental horticulture at a community college or a four-year institution.
LIFGA’s success is attributed to the dedication we put forward toward local growers, retail garden centers, nurseries, landscapers, arborists, farms and complement industries. We support group discussions and promote content that is most prevalent to the LI horticultural community.
Our association continues to grow by offering many opportunities through means of continuing education, networking dinners, sponsored events, website advertisements and affiliate of the PlantSomething national campaign.
Being a member of LIFGA is more than just being connected to a business group, it’s about being part of a larger family .. who LISTEN AND CARE !!
