$1000 Scholarships Available
The Garden Club of York understands the importance of education in promoting gardening and related topics to the next generation—over the past 20 years we have given approximately $60,000 in scholarships to York County students. This year we will award 2 or more $1000 scholarships. These scholarships are made possible through fundraising activities and donations by individuals who support the goals and objectives of the Garden Club of York. Donations are always welcome.

Our scholarships are open to both high school seniors and college students who are York County residents. The scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic standing, extracurricular activities, applicant’s letter and financial need. Extra points are awarded to those applicants who are related to a federated garden club member. Download the application below. Applications must be received no later than February 15, 2021.
