London College of Garden Design (LCGD) is launching today a special bursary scheme to celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2018.
Andrew Fisher Tomlin, Director said “As part of our commitment to the garden professions and to celebrate our 10th anniversary we’re making two scholarships available for our Garden Design Diploma starting in September 2018 and Planting Design Diploma starting in January 2019. Applications are welcome from those who are in financial need and will benefit from study to realise their full potential. “LCGD students have won more student design awards than any other college over the past 10 years and have graduated to establish successful careers all over the world. These two bursaries will help those who wouldn’t normally be able to benefit from our training and are aimed at those who have already started their careers in horticulture and design.
The process for applications is now open with a final submission date of Friday 6th April 2018. For further details visit the LCGD website at www.lcgd.org.uk/
