Grant for Educators
During 2016, we will be reviewing the grant intentions, guidelines, and application procedures for the HSA Grant for Educators. Therefore, the Grant for Educators grant will not be awarded in the 2016-17 academic year.
The Donald Samull Classroom Garden Grant and the Research Grant will be awarded in 2016-2017.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: JANUARY 31, 2017 AWARD DATE: MAY 1, 2017
Research grants are available to students, professionals, and individuals engaged in research on the horticultural, scientific, and/or social applications or use of herbs throughout history, based upon the HSA definition of an herb. The defining characteristic for herbs is their usefulness, past or present, including their value for flavoring, medicine, ornament, economic, industrial, or cosmetic purposes.
Our units offer grants and scholarships independently of our national organization – to review these grants, see the Grants & Scholarships Details page.
