LCMGA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Lake County Master Gardeners Association (LCMGA) is pleased to announce that it will be continuing its scholarship program for the 2024-2025 academic year. The LCMGA has been awarding scholarships for the past twenty years.
As promoting horticulture in higher education is one of our organization’s top priorities, LCMGA will be donating $1,000. annually to Purdue University’s Horticulture Department for scholarships given out by that Department.
To promote horticulture and related majors to students in Lake County, the LCMGA will be working with the Tri-Creek Community Foundation to find and award two scholarships of $1,000. each. Students, who are residents of Lake County, Indiana, with majors in Horticulture, Landscape Architecture, Forestry, Botany (Horticulture Equivalent), Plant Pathology, Agriculture, Agricultural Education, and Entomology are eligible for LCMGA Scholarships. Other majors that benefit consumer gardening may be considered. LCMGA feels that this will be the most effective means of reaching students that qualify for LCMGA Scholarships and allowing us to attain our goal of “Helping Others Grow.”
The grants and scholarships are funded by donations made to the Lake County Master Gardener Association in support of its activities, including the annual Plant Sale, Garden Walk, Lake County Fair, and from donations from generous donors, such as the NW Indiana Beekeepers Association.
