Arborjet Inc., a revolutionary plant health care company, reminds graduating high school seniors that the deadline for its “Taking Root” College Scholarship Program is right around the corner, and all applications must be submitted by June 30, 2018. For the fifth consecutive year, the scholarship program will award 10 graduating high school seniors each with a $1,000 scholarship to pursue full-time studies in Forestry, Plant Sciences, Horticulture, Entomology, Environmental Science or a related major at an accredited two- or four-year college.

Arborjet is committed to providing students the financial support they need to pursue career paths in these industries – and the opportunities are continuing to grow.

Applicants for Arborjet’s 2018 “Taking Root” scholarship program must be graduating U.S. high school seniors planning to major in forestry or a related major for the entire 2018-19 academic year at an accredited two- or four-year college or university.
