About the Scholarship

Bruce Briggs Memorial Scholarship

On behalf of the International Plant Propagators’ Society Western Region, I would like to inform you of a unique opportunity for horticulture students to attend our 62nd Annual Meeting with the help of the Bruce Briggs Memorial Scholarship. The International Plant Propagators’ Society (IPPS) Western Region awards the Bruce Briggs Memorial Scholarship to deserving students in agriculture and horticulture educational programs.

This scholarship is given each year to college and/or university students who are studying plant propagation and demonstrate a strong interest in pursuing propagation or production as a career. The scholarship pays for students to attend the annual International Plant Propagators’ Society meeting held in the Western Region. Both the registration fee (includes most meals) and shared accommodations are covered by the scholarship. Travel costs are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. The meeting will be held at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California from January 23-26, 2024.

The annual meeting gives the students the opportunity to hear presentations on various areas of plant production and network with industry professionals. A tour of nursery facilities and affiliated businesses is an integral part of the scheduled activities. An added benefit of the award is a one-year student membership to IPPS. Previous scholarship recipients are not eligible for a second scholarship.
