Oyster Bay, NY - December 10th, 2013 - Each year, the Long Island Horticultural Society (LIHS) offers scholarships to Long Island college students enrolled full-time or part-time in a horticulture program. In 2014, the Society will offer two scholarships of $1,000 each.
Founded in 1934, the LIHS promotes the study of horticulture on Long Island by helping to further the education of worthy students planning a career in the field.
