Conference Scholarship

IPPS Conference Scholarship

Are you a person who wants a future in Plant Production?
Do you want to learn more about plant propagation and nursery production techniques?
Ever wondered what IPPS New Zealand is all about?

Then apply for the IPPS Conference Scholarship and we can help you on your career path.

The International Plant Propagators’ Society is proud to offer this scholarship to those with a genuine interest in plant production and who wish to extend and improve their knowledge, network with others and explore a career in plant production.

The nursery industry worldwide is a thriving and dynamic industry to be involved with. At the heart of this industry are the plants and the people who understand them.

Why this Scholarship?

This Scholarship will financially assist you to attend an IPPS New Zealand annual conference or a regional IPPS field trip so that you can meet new people and learn what IPPS is all about.

The annual conference includes a mixture of educational and industry-specific talks, workshops and field trips over approximately three days. Several regional field trips are run each year in different parts of New Zealand. Both of these events are a great way to socialise and share the IPPS passion for plants.
