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.
