RHS Bursaries for the USA

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 first year of a post-graduate course at an American University of your choice in any field related to horticulture, landscape architecture, plant sciences or environmental studies.

Applications close on 26 October 2018 and the successful candidate would start their programme in August/September 2019.

Previous recipient, Alex Summers (Glasshouse Supervisor at Cambridge University) commented:

“The opportunity to work in the USA and experience horticulture as an international industry proved to be both personally and professionally rewarding. It provided a different perspective to the training gained in the UK and this has been of great benefit in my current position.”
