A fully funded year in the USA for British student horticulturists.

The Royal Horticultural Society, in collaboration with the Garden Club of America & Longwood Gardens, Pennsylvania, is offering the exciting opportunity of a 12-month practical internship in ornamental horticulture at the world-renowned Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.

The programme will be a planned, stimulating and exciting hands-on practical training programme in ornamental horticulture where Fellows will experience different horticulture areas at Longwood such as the Conservatory, Greenhouse Production, Outdoor Landscapes, Plant Records and Land Stewardship.

Fellows will also participate in weekly learning opportunities including trips to regional gardens, museums, nurseries and horticultural enterprises; they will uncover American horticultural techniques and regional plant species as well as making valuable horticultural contacts.

Applications close on 19 January 2024 and the successful candidate would start their programme in August/September 2024.

Full details on the scheme can be found on the RHS website or please contact Rowena Wilson at bursaries@rhs.org.uk for more information.
