The Indiana Nursery Endowment Fund awards scholarships on behalf of INLA to deserving students enrolled at the two Indiana landscape horticulture programs recognized by the INLA — Vincennes and Purdue Universities.

Your donations make this possible. General or memorial donations accepted. All donations are tax-deductible.
