The MNLA scholarship program recognizes superior students enrolled in horticultural, nursery or landscape studies programs at several area colleges and universities. The scholarships are designed by MNLA and its member companies to help grow future leaders in the nursery and landscape industry.

Linder Memorial Scholarship for Lee; and Hoff’s scholarship was sponsored by Bailey Nurseries, based in St. Paul.

To be eligible for an MNLA scholarship, applicants must possess a certain grade average, present letters of recommendation from instructors and employers, and submit an essay stating career goals and objectives.
