The Modesto Garden Club is now accepting applications from eligible high school seniors and college students for six $1,500 scholarships. Application packets are due by April 1.

To apply, applicants must have a major related to the Modesto Garden Club mission, attend a two- or four-year college as an undergraduate for the 2015-16 academic year, reside in Stanislaus County, or attend high school or college in Stanislaus County. Applications will be scored on how applicants’ answers relate to the Modesto Garden Club’s mission to “educate, impart knowledge and skills of landscape design, flora culture, agriculture, arborvitae, insects, ornamental horticulture and ornithology; to instill the joy of gardening for club members, school children, senior citizens and the community at large.”  

The money for scholarships is raised from the club’s annual Spring Garden Tour, which is set for April 18 this year. 

For more information, contact Maree Hawkins with the Modesto Garden Club Scholarship Committee at or 529-1517.
