Due to COVID-19 and travel limitations on Association in-person professional development events in 2020, the American Public Garden Association is suspending its fall cycle of full-package scholarship offerings. We will be evaluating opportunities this summer to provide scholarship assistance for our fall and winter virtual symposia, webinars and other professional development online learning.  

The next full-scholarship application cycle is scheduled to open in January 2021.  

Scholarships are funded through contributions by our Members.  

If you have benefited from a scholarship to further your professional career, please consider donating to support a future Garden Scholar!
