BCCGC awards are distributed to students who are contributing to the horticultural world in a variety of ways. Their courses range from a three-month course in viticulture, to a master’s degree in landscape architecture or pest management. In between are hands-on courses of eight months to a year, or bachelor degrees in horticulture-related fields. The Scholarship Trustees get wonderful letters from many of the award winners, and we thank them for sharing their goals and passions for their field of horticulture.
We continue to focus on connecting with scholarship and award departments to ensure our funds are distributed to qualifying students. The following chart shows the amount disbursed, in total, each year, and as is obvious, students are receiving more and more support each year.
