The Long Island Horticultural Society, founded in 1934, promotes the study of horticulture on Long Island by helping to further the education of worthy students planning a career in the field. Every year the organization offers the James and Mary Lee Fuller Scholarship for Horticultural Studies to honor the commitment of the Fullers to furthering education in the industry and to recognize their many years of devoted service to LIHS and the horticultural industry.
The Society will offer a $3,000 award in 2020. The award check will be presented at our June meeting.
