Scholarships: Six New Opportunities to Learn with Floret

Written by

Over the last five years I have had the incredible opportunity to watch past Floret Workshop participants go on to start new flower farms, incorporate seasonal flowers into their floral and event designs and launch so many successful new flower-based businesses. Seeing them emerge as new leaders in the seasonal flower movement has been an absolute thrill.

Now more than ever I am committed to encouraging others to plant more flowers and bring more beauty into the world. I have some big ideas for the future, but one way we can help right now is by offering tuition-free scholarships to the Floret Online Workshop, a 6-week intensive course focused on small scale flower farming.

Floret founder Erin Benzakein with student and floret scholarshipI’m thrilled to announce that we will be offering SIX Floret Scholarships this year!

Also new this year: We’re sweetening each scholarship a little more by also including a deluxe farmer-florist supply kit filled with my favorite books, seeds and other goodies to help our lucky winners get off to the best start possible.

Floret founder Erin Benzakein with workshop students floret scholarshipI want this opportunity to be given to someone who is ready, willing, and able to jump-start their flower-focused business with a little help from Floret. I’d love to support someone who is ready to take their flower-filled dreams to the next level. If that someone is you, please consider applying.

Our scholarship program is one way we can make our training more available and accessible to flower lovers around the world, especially to those who may need a little additional support. If you are a student, live in a lesser-developed country or are affiliated with a nonprofit organization, be sure to apply.

Read the scholarship eligibility requirements and access the application here. 

The Floret Scholarship application process is quick and hopefully pretty easy. The application consists of a few multiple choice checkboxes and two short essay questions where you can tell your story and share your dreams.

Floret ScholarshipsWe’re accepting applications through September 18th, only, so don’t delay if you plan to apply. Also, if you know someone who would be a perfect candidate, be sure to share this opportunity with them too.

The team and I can’t wait to dig in and start reading applications!

    Thank you to all of you for giving so many the opportunity to learn! The chance to be able to receive a scholarship is such a blessing to me, even if the chance is slim you are still giving me a hope and I do thank you for that! The dream of having a tiny, home based flower farm business and work at home with our children to cultivate Beauty in God’s gorgeous creation is a thrill in my heart! God has already provided so much for me (from cardboard to seed trays to shelving to compost to 400 tulip bulbs and more) to start preparing this fall for a 20 by 30 foot plot to start with, in growing Gorgeous Flowers to share with others! Thank you for all you do!
