The Exeter Area Garden Club is a non-profit organization that was formed to encourage interest in all types of home gardening and to promote civic beauty and the conservation of natural resources. We are pleased to work with the Seacoast School of Technology in Exeter and UNH Thompson School by setting aside a scholarship for a student who is interested in pursuing a career related to agriculture/plant science.
Each year, this scholarship is available to high school seniors or graduates in their second year of college who are pursuing, or are intending to pursue, the study of plant science at a school or college beyond high school. A selection committee reviews applications and makes a selection based on the applicant’s scholastic achievement, career goals, and demonstrated enthusiasm for a career in plant science. Applications for the scholarship can be obtained through the applicant’s academic advisor.
