Another reason to attend!

We are offering up to 25 scholarships of $100 each for Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional certificate training to people who attend the conference.

  • If more than 25 people want them, we will allot them to people in the order in which you register for the conference.
    Recipients need to qualify for CBLP training, which would be most of the audience:

  • The scholarship may be applied to either CBLP-1 or CBLP-Crews certificate courses.

  • Recipients' professional work needs to be in Northern Virginia (Prince William, Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria, and the jurisdictions therein.)

  • CBLP training must be completed by Spring 2023.

  • If you have a Spanish-speaking employee or colleague who can't attend our conference because of the language barrier, you may designate your scholarship for that person to take the Spanish version of CBLP-Crews on October 24.
