Ed Markham was an international horticulturist. He began a career in horticulture sales after graduating from the Horticulture Department at Cornell University in 1942. Ed's interest in providing scholarship funds to study marketing through international travel stemmed from his first trip abroad in the early 1960s. The Markham-Colegrave International Scholarship operates in cooperation with the David Colegrave Foundation in London England. Each year there will be an exchange of students between the U.S. and Europe alternating between the two countries. U.S. students should apply for this scholarship in even numbered years.
