Beginning in 2009, the Urban Gardening Coalition decided to award one student annually with scholarship money to be applied toward higher education. Eligible students must participate and show leadership in urban gardening initiatives – and be a high school senior or a current college student. Eligible students must be nominated by an active member of the Urban Gardening Coalition, maintain a 2.0 GPA, and provide proof of enrollment at an institution of higher learning.
Scholarship funds have been generously provided by a community donor. The award amount is $1000.
