Garden Club Scholarship

Scholarship Description

The GCA Award in Coastal Wetland Studies seeks to promote wetland conservation through the support of young scientists in their field work and research.  Recognizing the growing value placed on wetlands, the GCA created this award to encourage sound scientific knowledge of coastal wetlands (defined as those tidal or nontidal wetlands found in the coastal states, including those of the Great Lakes).  The student may propose a wetlands program of his/her choice at a leading educational institution within the United States that specializes in wetlands studies.  The Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) of the College of Willliam & Mary, Gloucester Point, Virginia, is the administrator for this significant new award.
