SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

Graduation Crown

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.

The Falmouth Garden Club awarded scholarships to four local graduates in 2021. 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.

We were delighted to host our four recipients and their guests at our June luncheon held at the Flying Bridge Restaurant.  Joseph Beaudoin a senior at Falmouth High School is planning to study Fisheries & Wildlife Management at Paul Smith College. Joe grew up on a cranberry bog which became his playground and passion.One of his references credits him with the desire and commitment to make a difference in his community and the world.  Chloe Fox plans to further her studies in Environmental Science after graduating from Sturgis Charter Public School. Described as a well-rounded leader Chloe has actively contributed to helping create a future sustainable world. Brendan Pokraka a senior at Upper Cape Technical School ,has committed to study Arboriculture at UMass Stockbridge.  Know in town for his strong work ethic, Brendan credits family (his first mentor his grandfather was his special guest), coaches, employers especially Paul Miskovsky for his pursuit of of studies in agriculture.  Madison Valley, a senior at Falmouth Academy, plans to study Marine Biology at the University of New England. Madison has grown through the ranks of Ship 40, Falmouth's local Sea Scout Ship. She was awarded Sea Scout of the Year in 2020 for Ship 40. She hopes to study the ocean with a focus on sharks and climate change.
