We are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for our scholarship and our educational grant now through April 15! Our $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to a high school senior or college student who is a Holliston resident and planning to major in Horticulture, Botany, Landscape Design Forestry, Environmental Science, Land Management, or other garden-related field. It was founded by Dorothy (Dot) Stevens, a former Club president, who recognized the importance of preserving our natural world and whose dream it was to encourage young people to pursue careers in horticulture.
Educational grants are awarded annually to Holliston residents or organizations that seek to provide children with educational projects in horticulture or garden-related subjects. Funded grants over the years have supported the planting of tulip bulbs in the Placentino School courtyard, several High School greenhouse projects, window box planting projects with elementary special needs students, materials for the butterfly aviary, and the installation of a pollinator garden at Placentino Elemetary.
If you are interested in applying for an educational grant or scholarship, please visit our scholarships and grants page and send in your application by April 15.
