The Amherst Orchid Society, established circa 1983 and of which I am a member, is offering a $500 scholarship for students intending to major in plant sciences, agriculture and/or related earth science disciplines in college. Awards are made based on the applicants essay addressing their serious intention and passion for the subject.
