US: AFE Now Accepting Applications for $10,000 2015 Ecke Scholarship
The scholarship honours the late Paul Ecke Jr. of Encinitas, Calif., who made significant contributions to the floriculture industry and believed strongly in research and education. Ecke was concerned about the future of floriculture and recognized that innovative researchers and educators are necessary for the continued success of the industry.

Applicants must be in the process of successfully completing either a B.S. or M.S. degree in horticulture or a related field, (e.g., agricultural engineering, entomology, agricultural marketing and economics, plant pathology, etc.) at a U.S. land-grant university and must have the intention of pursuing an M.S. or Ph.D. degree on a full-time basis.
Emma Lookabaugh, North Carolina State University 2014 Ecke Recipient
Although two students were awarded Ecke scholarships in 2014, generally one student will receive the award of $5,000 for two consecutive years, provided they continue to meet requirements and submit an annual update.
"This scholarship motivates me more than ever to strive for excellence in my schooling and research, in the aims of ultimately giving back more to this industry I have become passionate about," Joshua Craver, a 2014 Ecke recipient, said.
In addition to the application, the following documents must be submitted directly to AFE by the Feb. 1 deadline:
• A personal statement explaining the applicant's 1) reason for applying for the scholarship, 2) personal involvement in floriculture activities, 3) proposed research project and how it will contribute directly or indirectly toward resolving a major floriculture issue and 4) anticipated future professional goals in floriculture.
• Three letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the applicant's floriculture-related advisor.
• Official transcripts sent directly from the Office of the Registrar.
• A video, up to three minutes long, telling the selection committee what makes you the best candidate for this scholarship and describing your current or proposed research project.
• A colour photo (preferably high resolution) for publicity purposes.
