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 $2,000 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.
Please note the application deadline for the 2022-2023 academic year has passed, and awards will be announced by March 15, 2022. Visit this site in December 2022 for next year’s (2023-2024) application information.
