Scholarship & Toolships

The Garden Club of Hyannis offers scholarships in the spring of each year to area high school graduates and college students pursuing degrees in horticulture, agriculture, environmental studies or related fields. Toolships are awarded to those pursuing careers in landscaping or related fields upon graduation from high school. The amount allotted for yearly scholarships and/or toolships is dependent on the annual fundraising 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 monthly luncheon meeting which is held in May.
