Highlands County MG Scholarship Program

Each year the Master Gardeners have one plant sale to raise funds for Master Gardener Scholarships. In 2014 we funded three $1,000 scholarships that were awarded to Highlands County High School students. This school year we are going to be awarding three $1,000 scholarships (one per Highlands County High School).


MG Scholarship Information

Three Scholarships were awarded in the amount of $1,000 each to local Highlands County Graduating Seniors, persuing a degree in horticulture.
Congratulations!

Stay tuned for information on our 2017 Scholarship.
