GGMGA Scholarship Program
In 2018 the Greater Greenville Master Gardeners Association implemented a scholarship program, with the goal of giving back to the community by supporting horticulture education for Greenville County residents. This program is funded primarily through the income generated by the GGMGA Rent-A-Master Gardener program. Scholarship funds are distributed each year in several different ways:
- Tuition assistance may be awarded to qualified college students who have completed at least one year in an accredited institution of higher education with the goal of furthering their education in a horticulture-related course of study. Applications are generally due in March.
- Tuition reimbursement may be provided for selected Greenville County residents who enroll in the Clemson Extension Service’s Master Gardener Training Course.
- Greenville County teachers involved in school gardening projects may receive free attendance at the GGMGA annual symposium.
- Fourth, fifth and sixth grade students from Greenville County may receive scholarships to attend the two-week Jr. Master Gardener Camp which is offered each summer through Roper Mountain Science Center, Greenville County 4H, and the GGMGA.
