Through FNGLA's efforts, the entirety of Florida's nursery and landscape industry benefits! In 2012, FNGLA celebrated 60 years of industry representation.

The James H. Davis Memorial Scholarship fund was created to encourage students to pursue careers in Florida’s horticulture industry and related pursuits by providing financial assistance for undergraduate, postgraduate, or other advanced education programs in Florida. The intent is to provide career paths for qualified students in need of financial support to gain expertise and experience, earn post high school degrees and become active members and leaders in the horticulture industry. This scholarship program is linked to apprenticeship mentoring, employment and advanced educational opportunities both during and after the student has graduated. 

Scholarships are based on financial need, student's ability to maintain a 2.0 grade point average, and full-time enrollment in a horticulture program or related field with the intent to graduate in that field.
