GCLA Scholarship Program
Since its inception, the GCLA has placed a priority on providing scholarships to students seeking degrees in the “Green Industry.” We have a couple of fund-raisers each year which assist with the scholarships and operations of the association. We have a golf tournament in the spring and an auction in the summer. Our golf tournaments are wonderful, fun events with plenty of door prizes. The certified auctioneer makes our auction one of the best in the area. We always have lots of fun and food while raising funds for the association.
Since 2000, the GCLA has distributed in excess of $100,000 in scholarships. In addition to annual scholarships given to individual students in horticultural or related studies, the GCLA has funded a $25,000 endowed scholarship at Clemson University, and sponsors students from
Clemson Universityparticipating in the PLANET program.
So far this year we have distributed $800 to Clemson for student participation in the PLANET program and $3000 to students majoring in Horticulture and Diversified Agriculture.
