San Diego Floral Association
College Scholarship Program

The San Diego Floral Association has awarded over $50,000 in scholarships recognizing students who are making a difference in the fields of horticulture, floriculture, urban gardening, floral design, landscape design and installation, organic gardening, sustainable farming and water management and other related areas. We are proud that we have been able to support students in their quest for a better education. Earning a degree related to horticultural science will prepare students for interesting and community-based careers – from field research to botanical gardens.
