Each school year the Men’s Garden Club awards scholarships to two deserving community college students that are pursuing a certificate in the horticulture program of the community college with the intent of pursuing a career in that field.  Criteria for the scholarships include financial need, exhibited scholastic ability, and an intense desire to satisfy their goal in the horticulture field.

One of the scholarships is the Gerry Hardesty scholarship awarded to a student at Mayland Community College.  The other scholarship is the Milford Shaver scholarship awarded to a student at Blue Ridge Community College.
