Gardener Corner Scholarship

Aspiring to spread awareness, GardenerCorner is pleased to announce the annual scholarship opportunity for college students, vocational, and trade schools who share the same passion with us. Our goal is to help students to follow their dreams by providing the opportunity to learn something they love and need to a selected few.

If you think you have what it takes to get the program, we highly encourage you to give it a try. Who knows? It might be for you, after all.

Eligibility Criteria: 
  • We welcome all students from universities and vocational schools. If you are below 18 or if you're still in high school, you can still join with the consent of your parents or a legal guardian before joining.
  • Having a strong passion for gardening, farming, raising livestock, green living, homesteading, agriculture, and permaculture is a major factor. You don't have to have actual experience.
Additional Information: 

Write 1500-2000 words long essay about how people living in the urban area can adopt the sustainable lifestyle. In other words, what are the ways or steps people can take in order to reduce carbon footprint and their use of Earth's natural resources?

Other criteria in assessing your entry:

  • Originality
  • Feasibility
  • Creativity

Keep in mind that there are many articles out there related to this topic. That's why we need you to think of original, creative ideas that are feasible and can actually be applied by most people (i.e. without drastically changing their current lifestyle).

We only allow one submission per person.

Once you’re done with your essay, you can send it to gardenercornerscholarship@gmail.com on or before November 30, 2017.

When submitting, please don’t forget to include these details:

  • Complete name with address and phone number
  • Name of your school
  • Any proof of being a student
