US: AFE is now accepting applications for internship programmes

The deadline for online applications for the Vic & Margaret Ball Intern Scholarship Program and the Mosmiller Intern Scholarship Program is Tuesday, Oct. 1. Internships are the best way for students to gain valuable hands-on experience to aid in their academic and professional goals, and the American Floral Endowment (AFE) has two floriculture and horticulture internship programs to help.

This intern scholarship program offers paid internships for three, four or six months and provides scholarships of up to $6,000 upon completion.

The Mosmiller Intern Scholarship Program honors the late Colonel and Mrs. Walter E. Mosmiller, Jr., and provides students pursuing a career in retail or wholesale operations with an opportunity to gain internship experience. The Mosmiller Intern Scholarship program offers paid internships in 10-14 week durations and provides scholarships of $2,000 upon completion.
