Master Gardener Logo

The Cass County, Iowa Master Gardeners (CCMG) are again offering a $1,000 scholarship to local students, with applications due April 1, 2020.  This scholarship is available to students who are graduating seniors or graduates of any of the following Iowa school districts, in which currently reside members of CCMG:  Atlantic, Clarinda, CAM, Exira-EHK, Griswold, or Red Oak.
 
The goal of the Master Gardener program is to support horticulture education and community service.  CCMG members provide many hours of volunteer service and gardening education within their local communities.  Accordingly, this scholarship is intended to provide post-secondary funds to individuals who are studying, or intend to pursue a career in, a horticulture-related field.  The scholarship winner will be selected based upon academic success, history of community service, and career goals related to horticulture. Demonstration of past interest and experience in horticulture will be very helpful. 
 
The scholarship is for those pursuing post-secondary education during the 2020-2021 school year. The recipient will be notified of their award on or before May 20, 2020 for planning purposes. A scholarship check will be issued in January 2021, in the student’s name directly to the academic institution, upon receipt of an official grade transcript for the completed Fall 2020 semester. A previous scholarship recipient may re-apply, but an individual may only receive a total of two scholarships from this program.
 
The application form is available through the high school guidance departments, or can be downloaded using the link below. Applications should be submitted to the Cass County Extension Office, 805 W 10th St, Atlantic, Iowa 50022, or emailed to keolson@iastate.edu on or before the April 1 deadline for consideration. Questions can be directed to the Cass County Extension Office at 712-243-1132.
