Student Scholarships




Since its inception in 1998, the National Association of Landscape Professionals Foundation has granted scholarships to students enrolled in landscape contracting and/or horticultural programs at two-year or four-year colleges and universities. To qualify, students must be an active member of their NALP Student Chapter.

In 2017, the Foundation awarded over $90,000 in scholarships and awards to deserving students - an achievement made possible by the generosity of our contributing Ambassadors, individuals, and suppliers who are leaders in the landscape industry.

Applications are currently being accepted for the 2018 – 2019 school year.  Requirements include:
