Gardening can be a lifetime hobby or a career. We are fortunate that several of our members throughout the years have been horticultural professionals. We learn from each other and encourage our membership to grow their understanding of our natural world. We support those who are continuing their education, and through 2022 we have awarded more than $50,000 to students pursuing degrees in horticulture or other plant-related fields.

Our club provides two $2,500 scholarships each year to those pursuing education in horticulture, botanically oriented environmental studies, landscape design, botany, agronomy, botanical sustainability, or other plant-related fields. The scholarship must be used at a two-year, four-year or graduate accredited college, university or vocational school and used within the year the scholarship is awarded. It may be used for tuition and/or fees.

We will accept applications for the 2023-2024 school year starting December 2022.  Please note that the deadline for submission is February 15, 2023 and scholarship awards will be announced March 15, 2023.
