Rewarding Excellence

For more than 40 years The Garden Club has awarded scholarships to students in area schools pursuing an education in environmental studies, agribusiness, botany or any related course of study.  


Currently the criteria for the scholarship is a graduating senior enrolled in a college or university pursuing the above course of studies. The scholarship is awarded in June and paid after the student has successfully completed their first semester.  Here is our application.  We hope you consider applying!
