The purpose of the GCFM Horticulture Scholarship is to encourage and financially aid students who are interested in a future major or in a current major in horticulture, floriculture, landscape design, conservation, forestry, botany, agronomy, plant pathology, environmental control, city planning, and/or other gardening related fields.
Applicants must meet all eligibility requirements as listed on the National Garden Clubs Scholarships website. The student must be a legal resident of the State of Maine and must be a junior or senior in an undergraduate program leading to a degree in one of the previously mentioned areas. College sophomores are eligible to apply, as they will be entering their junior year the following fall. Masters students pursuing an education in one of these fields are also eligible, but PhD students are not. Masters students must be enrolled for the fall semester following the award. If awaiting acceptance to graduate school, students should apply on the basis of expenses and programs that would pertain to their preferred school.
