SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

Our Scholarship Committee identifies and recommends students for scholarships.

There are usually two scholarships awarded

in the amount of $1,000 each. 

 

Our  scholarship is available to FALMOUTH RESIDENTS who are high school seniors, college students, and/or previous recipients planning to major or are majoring in HORTICULTURE, LANDSCAPE DESIGN, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, or RELATED FIELDS.

2019 awards recipients

Bridget Beaudoin & Alice Pendergast. 

The Falmouth Garden Club awarded scholarships to three local graduates in 2020. Recipients of the club scholarships must be Falmouth residents studying agricultural education, botany, conservation, environmental studies, forestry, horticulture, land management, landscape design, plant pathology science or other related studies.

Due to Covid-19 we were unable to award our 2020 recipients in person so sadly no photo opportunity but wish them luck as they pursue their studies. Colin Bostwick was headed to Unity College in Maine, where he has been accepted into the Conservation Law Enforcement Program.  He worked on the Patriot Boats and saw first hand how conservation and/or the lack of it affects marine life and fisheries. Alexander La Ruffa is attending the University of NH.  He plans to continue his education that will enable him to research our environment.  He wants to work to help reverse the damage to our planet.  Noelle Tavares is attending the Maine Maritime Academy.  She wants to continue her education thru at least a Master's Degree possibly Doctorate.  She wishes to teach others about our ecosystems and help us love the natural world around us.
