The Naperville Garden Club awards scholarships to college and vocational students with majors reflecting the interests of the club. Our recipients for the 2016-17 school year are pursuing degrees in Biology, Geological Science, Horticulture and Landscape Management, Natural Resources and Environmental Science and Landscape Architecture.
Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, commitment to career, extra curricular activities and financial need.
Scholarship funds are determined in April and are dependent on the success of the club’s major fundraiser, the Cup of Cheer™ House Walk, Holiday Market and Tea, held the first Thursday and Friday each December.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens and preference is given to students residing within School Districts 203 or 204. Scholarships are renewable on a yearly basis, provided the student reapplies and continues to meet the standards of the scholarship program.
Completed applications and all supporting materials are due April 1 to the scholarship chair. Applicants will be notified by e-mail by May 1. Applications are available on our website-www.napervillegardenclub.org.
