Master Gardener Extension Volunteers Local Scholarship
Each year, Master Gardener Extension Volunteers in Paulding offer a local scholarship, available to Paulding County residents that are incoming freshmen or students attending post-secondary accredited institutions. The group gives first consideration to Paulding County students in the following fields of study: Agriculture, Horticulture, Landscaping, Forestry, Botany, and Biology and students who are Paulding County Senior 4-H’ers. A scholarship committee will administer the total amount of up to $1000 to be awarded from the Paulding County Master Gardener Association.
This is one of the many outreach programs of Master Gardener Extension Volunteers in Paulding County. Over the last 10 years, Master Gardeners have awarded more than $10,000.00 to local students attending college. Funds for this outreach are raised at the Paulding County Master Gardener Annual Plant Sale each year.
Deadline for returning completed applications for this year’s scholarship is Wednesday, March 27 at 5 pm. Scholarship requirements and applications are available online at http://extension.uga.edu/
