The goal of the MNLA Foundation Academic Awards program is to honor the academic achievements of students who have chosen the nursery and landscape industry as their career choice. Furthermore, the program aims to encourage students to stay in this career path and to help them make connections with nursery and landscape employers who are MNLA members. By partnering with interested member companies, over 20 scholarships are awarded every year to deserving students.
Sponsoring companies are asked to make a $500 commitment ($250 for the high school program), and the MNLA Foundation will match up to $500 ($250) of these funds. Companies can sponsor more than one award if they choose.
MNLA will provide the following:
· Press releases to various media, including company’s local paper, and student’s hometown and college publications
· Company recognition in the Scoop and on the MNLA website
· Recognition at Northern Green
· Opportunities to be introduced to your sponsored student at Northern Green and other events
