Idaho Native Plant Society Scholarship

The Idaho Native Plant Society (INPS) sponsors the Idaho Native Plant Society Scholarship Program. We invite applications for a scholarship of $2000 to be awarded each year, as we want to support college or university students interested in native plants and plant communities. In alignment with our INPS mission, we want to award our scholarship to students interested in understanding and appreciation of our native flora.


The scholarship will be available for a full- or part-time graduate or undergraduate student enrolled in any accredited 2- or 4-year college or university in Idaho. Student applicants must be registered for a minimum of 6 college or university semester credits (or equivalent) at the time of the award.

Student applicants must demonstrate an interest in botany, horticulture, forestry, rangeland ecology, environmental science, agriculture, conservation, science education, natural resources, or a closely related program. They must be pursuing a major in one of these fields.

Application Form

To apply, please complete the application form with student information, relevant experience, and a personal statement. Student applicants must solicit a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or other mentor who can speak to the student’s character and goals specific to the scholarship.
