Nov 12, 2019IFTA Young Professionals Scholarship Program open for applicants
The International Fruit Tree Association (IFTA) Young Professionals Scholarship Program was started in 2013 to encourage the next generation of fruit tree growers to attend the association’s educational events.
The first Young Professional Scholarships were awarded that year for the IFTA Study Tour in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was a great success, and IFTA is hopeful in supporting this program for many future events.
IFTA is currently procuring sponsor support to provide scholarships to Young Professionals who would like to attend the 2020 IFTA Annual Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Feb. 9-12, 2020.
Applications will be reviewed and recipients will be notified on or before Dec. 20, 2019.
The IFTA Young Professionals Committee will also be coordinating the Welcome Reception in Michigan.
Application deadline is Dec. 6.
