The Merlin Trust offers Travel Grants to Young Horticulturists to enable them to learn more about plants and expand their horizons.
APPLICATIONS FOR UK TRAVEL AWARDS ARE OPEN! Applications for the four UK-only awards listed on the ‘Available Grants’ page are welcome. If you’re unsure whether your project qualifies, please do get in touch with us. UK-only awards are currently being considered because of the continued uncertainty over travel.
The Merlin Trust is keen to support internships at gardens or other horticultural organisations across the UK. This could include work experience of a few days to longer periods that allow applicants to more fully explore new areas of horticulture, work closely with particular plants or plant collections, experience different gardens and their microclimates and growing conditions, or work alongside a specialist to develop new skills. Please do contact the Merlin Trust Secretary if you have an idea you would like to discuss or for advice on gardens or organisations to approach for your area of interest.
