The Garden Club of Hyannis offers scholarships and toolships in the spring of each year to area high school graduates and college students pursuing degrees in horticulture, agriculture, environmental studies or related fields. The amount allotted for yearly scholarships and/or toolships is dependent on the annual fund raising events of the Club, such as plant and yard sales and the Holiday Showcase.
Applications are solicited by the Club from area high schools via guidance offices, media notices, online and individual members. A scholarship committee screens the applications and recommends deserving recipients based on monies available yearly. The awarded recipients are invited as guests of the Club to our last monthly meeting which includes a luncheon and will be held on May 15, 2018.
In addition the Garden Club Federation of MA awards many scholarships and this information is forwarded to area high school guidance offices as well as being online from the MA Federation.
The Garden Club of Hyannis awards toolships to deserving graduates who may be pursuing careers in landscaping or related fields upon graduation from high school. These applications are solicited from Cape Cod Technical High Schools and awarded based on need and availability of monies.
The Garden Club of Hyannis is proud of its dedication to students pursuing horticulture and related fields. Its members are dedicated to raising funds for deserving students to obtain information and to generate new ideas in the horticulture field.
THESE THREE TAKE THE CAKE---AND SCHOLARSHIPS TOO!!!
Allison Carter, Olivia McFarlane and Bailey Nance recently received scholarships from The Garden Club of Hyannis – and a yummy cake too! The three were selected from a number of strong applicants as the club’s 2018 scholarship winners.
Ms. Carter, of Centerville and a Barnstable High School graduate, heads to the University of Massachusetts this fall where she will major in Environmental Science. Sandwich resident Olivia McFarlane leaves Upper Cape Tech for the University of Maine. She plans to major in Secondary Education with a concentration in Life Science. Ms. Nance, also an Upper Cape Tech graduate, lives in Monument Beach. She will attend Merrimack College pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability.
One of the club’s key goals is enhancing education, not only for its members, but also for future generations. Proceeds from special events, such as last year’s Holiday Showcase, help fund scholarships and other community support activities.
These recipients were invited to a club luncheon where they were surprised with a special cake of congratulations.
