SAN DIEGO — Incoming or existing students of any college horticultural program can now apply for a new $500 biannual scholarship from BurrowRx, a San Diego-based manufacturer of a burrowing and tunneling rodent control device.

BurrowRx is an innovative solution for controlling burrowing pests such as gophers, ground squirrels, moles, rats, prairie dogs and other burrowing rodents.

Peter Kinnally, owner and president of BurrowRx, said he created the BurrowRx Horticultural Scholarship to give back to horticultural students because many end up working careers in pest control, farming and other related fields that are applicable to the control of burrowing animals.

“We want to help boost the careers of hard-working students as they decide to enter a horticultural program to start learning about their future profession,” said Kinnally. “BurrowRx has been a tremendously successful product that is making its own mark in the pest control industry, while being used in related fields like horticulture and farming. We’re proud to be able to give back to those pursuing a profession in horticulture.”

The scholarship will be open to all students attending a U.S.-based higher learning institution, whether a college or university, and will be offered at $500 twice a year – every July and January. The first scholarship will be announced on July 23. Once the scholarship winner is announced, students will then be able to apply for the winter scholarship later that month.

Applications are currently open for the scholarship. Interested students can download an application on the BurrowRx website at www.burrowrx.com/scholarshipapp. Students must apply by July 15 to be considered for the July scholarship. Applications should be emailed to scholarship@BurrowRx.com.
