Loren Anthony, a horticulture honors student in the Bumpers College, has received the Mosmiller Intern Scholarship from American Floral Endowment.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Loren Anthony, a horticulture major at the University of Arkansas, has been named recipient of the American Floral Endowment Mosmiller Intern Scholarship for this summer.
Anthony, a junior in the Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences, is an Honors College student from Springdale.
The Mosmiller Intern Scholarship allows interns to train at a leading retail, wholesale or allied trade operation and gain on-the-job experience for 10 to 16 weeks. To be considered, Anthony submitted an application, official transcript, letter of recommendation, and a personal statement explaining her reason for applying, involvement in floriculture and career plans.
"I am overwhelmed with joy at being selected for the Mosmiller Scholarship," said Anthony, who graduated from Springdale High School. "I look forward to learning more through this opportunity and being able to find even more reasons to love every aspect of horticulture."
Anthony was also awarded a $1,000 grant from the Bumpers College Undergraduate Creative Projects/Research Grants Program last year for her project with University Professor John Clark, "DNA Mapping of Phonotypic Traits in Primocane-Fruiting Blackberries."
AFE is an independent nonprofit organization funding research and scholarships in floriculture and environmental horticulture for the benefit of growers, wholesalers, retailers, allied industry organizations and the general public.
