Cullowhee Native Plant Conference Scholarship

Each year in July, Western Carolina University hosts the Cullowhee Native Plant Conference. The purpose of the conference is to increase interest in and knowledge of propagating and preserving native southeastern plant species in the landscape. The Scholarship Program has been an important part of the Cullowhee Conference since the conference began in 1984. The Scholarship Program is open to applicants with careers in environmental and science education. Approximately 20 scholarships to the Cullowhee Conference are awarded annually to students, interns at botanical gardens, nature centers and/or parks, and to beginning professionals in a native plant-related field.

North Carolina Native Plant Society provides scholarship funds for North Carolina students and beginning professionals to attend the Cullowhee Native Plant Conference. These scholarships may include the cost of conference registration, room and board, and field trip fees. The Cullowhee Scholarship Committee administers the selection process. Western Carolina University sends out notifications for applications to colleges and universities in early March. Scholarship applications may also be found at the Cullowhee Native Plant Conference website.
