The International Plant Propagators’ Society (IPPS) Western Region awards the Bruce Briggs Memorial Scholarship to deserving students in horticulture educational programs. The late Bruce Briggs was a proud and active member of the Western Region of IPPS. He enjoyed students and promoted IPPS worldwide.

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 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 accommodations (shared) are covered by the scholarship. Travel costs are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. The meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn in Wilsonville, Oregon from January 24-27, 2023.

The annual meeting gives students the opportunity to interact and hear presentations on various areas of plant propagation. A tour of nursery propagation facilities and affiliated businesses is an integral part of the scheduled activities. The number of scholarships awarded is determined by the cost of the meeting and hotel rooms for that year. An added benefit of the award is a one-year student membership in IPPS. Previous scholarship recipients are not eligible for a second scholarship.
