EWHA's Grant

Support for women in Horticulture

In 2020, as another way to engage with our organisations purpose, EWHA created two new annual grants which will benefit a small business and a horticulture apprentice each year.

This year EWHA have changed what is on offer. If you are an apprentice, you are now eligable for the Dawn Fleming Student Scholarship and the Small Business Grant amount has been increased! We think these changes reflect the current postion of the industry and hope that it offers extra support.

If you have a small busniess within the horticulture industry and wish to apply for the Small Business Grant you will find details below.

Please note that applications close on 30th April 2024. Applications will be assessed and the winners announced in Winter.

The Small Business Grant is in part funded by Membership fees, if you are not a member of EWHA and would like to support initiatives like this, you can take this opportunity to join EWHA. The membership application form can be found here.
