We believe that providing support to help further the education of our youth is a contribution and investment we can make in the future of our natural environment.  To that end, each year the Haddam Garden Club offers a $500 scholarship to a graduating student from Haddam who is pursuing a degree in environmental, horticultural, conservation or landscape science.  The scholarship is a gift to be put toward educational expenses and does not need to be matched or repaid.  The student must reside in Haddam, but can be attending any high school, public or private.  The deadline for submitting an application is April 1st.
