The Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees is offering four $3,000
scholarships to apiculture graduate students in 2019. The purpose of this
scholarship program, now in its twelfth year, is to foster professional
development of emerging apicultural scientists by allowing award recipients to attend the American Beekeeping Federation (ABF) Conference & Tradeshow. This year’s event is scheduled to take place at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center on January 8-12, 2019.
