Horticulture Science Institute

Thanks to the generous support of Gaston Farm Bureau, N.C. Cooperative Extension is offering up to five scholarships to NC State University’s Horticultural Science  Summer Institute, July 10-15, 2022.

This program is an in-person, residential, pre-college program that is an  action packed week of plant propagation, tree climbing, chromosome squashing, and  friend-making.

Applications are open on NCSU’s Reporter system (families will need to create a
“Brickyard” account). We encourage Gaston County high school youth to learn
more and apply online at: https://growforit.ces.ncsu.edu/growforit-programs/
hssi/ .

Gaston County Applicants will automatically be considered for scholarships
covering all but $100 of the program costs which includes on-campus lodging in
the dorms, most meals, field trips, workshop materials, and entertainment. This is a great opportunity for students to explore college-decisions and leadership development, while enjoying evening entertainment and living in a campus  residence hall with campus dining. The camp provides a close-knit forum for high school students across the state (and country) to gather together and broaden their interest and knowledge about horticulture.
