The James and Helen Phillip Scholarship Fund was established to honor James and Helen Phillip by providing scholarship assistance to people in need who are interested in careers in the retail sector of the floral industry. The Fund was established by a $500,000 donation by their daughter, Lee Phillip Bell, in 2008.


This AFE scholarship provides grants to institutions to distribute to students primarily in the Great Lakes region, however they also will be available to worthy applicants from elsewhere in the country. The gift is designed to achieve several goals. “This will go a long way toward helping people in need while creating a pool of trained workers to fill positions in retail flower shops,” said Bell’s nephew, Jim Phillip. “Because the principal will never be touched, this Fund will leave a perpetual legacy to honor Jim and Helen Phillip — giving back to an industry which they dearly loved.”

Current institutions receiving grants through the James and Helen Phillip Scholarship:

  • Joliet Junior College
  • Kishwaukee College
  • Mississippi State University
  • The Ohio State University ATI
  • Texas A&M University

To be considered to receive a grant, please complete the Application Form and return it to AFE no later than March 1 of each year.  Applications will be reviewed and institutions will be notified in June/July if they have been selected.
