Garden Club of America Offers Scholarships to Students

Hurry! Time is quickly ticking away for the opportunity to apply for the Garden Club of America (GCA) Zone VI Fellowship in Urban Forestry. Complete applications are due January 31.

Casey Trees is pleased to partner once again this year with the GCA to administer its Zone VI Fellowship in Urban Forestry.  The Fellowship aims to advance the field of urban forestry and encourages students to study the planning, management, horticulture and ecology of urban forests and the effect of healthy urban forests on people and the environment.

As a volunteer nonprofit organization comprised of 200 member clubs, the GCA passionately devotes its energies and expertise to a wide array of projects in communities across the country. To promote a greater understanding of the interdependence of horticulture, environmental protection and community involvement, the GCA annually awards more than $300,000 in scholarships.

Eligibility is open to advanced undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in U.S. institutions studying urban forestry, environmental studies, horticulture, forestry or related programs. We encourage all eligible students to apply and look forward to reviewing applicant’s materials in the coming weeks.
