The Worshipful Company of Gardeners of London Charity have pledged to support a new HortTech Award scholarship - worth up to £5,000.
The new scholarship will be awarded by The Colegrave Seabrook Foundation who invites applications from 'students or academics who can display a keen interest in HortTech. This interest is likely to be demonstrated by students through specific practical work in this area or by academics who are actively engaged in the teaching and/or development of horticultural technologies and who are looking for funding to develop or further their existing work on new technology.'

“The Worshipful Company of Gardeners of London Charity Trustees are delighted to support this award and to be working with the Colegrave Seabrook Foundation to further the use of technology within the horticultural industry.”
Jeff Colegrave, chair of the Trustees of The Colegrave Seabrook Foundation, added:
“The development of new technologies within our industry is hugely important and this backing from The Worshipful Company of Gardeners will enable us to support new research and drive this exciting sector of horticulture forward.
