There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. In this week’s Scholarship Spotlight, we look at the Elmhurst Garden Club Scholarship. Open to Illinois residents who are graduate students or undergraduates in their junior or senior year who are pursuing a horticulturally-related degree, The Elmhurst Garden Club Scholarship may be right for you. More details, including deadlines and how to apply can be found on the College Coach Insider Blog at blog.getintocollege.com.
There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. Every student has some skill, interest, experience, or characteristic that may make them an attractive candidate for one scholarship or another. And while we often refer to scholarships as “free money,” scholarships don’t actually come for free. It takes work to thoughtfully consider your strengths and research the scholarships that might be most appropriate for you. While the effort that goes into finding and winning scholarships may be akin to a part-time job, we at College Coach want to make your job a little easier. This on-going scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week. Check out the below, along with the other posts in the series, and you may discover a funding resource that will make covering that college bill a little (or a lot!) easier.
Does your town or city have a garden club? You may not even have to be a member or the dependent of a member to qualify for a scholarship from the organization. The Elmhurst Garden Club (IL) offers money to Illinois residents who are interested in horticultural education, conservation, or landscape design.
