THE TEXAS MASTER GARDENER (MG) PROGRAM SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY
The Texas Master Gardener program is an educational activity and volunteer program conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (aka Texas AgriLife Extension Service) and is open to people of all ages, regardless of socio-economic level, race, color, sex, handicap, veteran status, or national origin. The program is designed to increase the availability of research-based horticultural information through horticultural projects, events, and other activities countywide. These goals are implemented through the training and employment of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners (MGs).
The MG program provides valuable training and educational opportunities for persons seeking up-to-date horticultural information. Participants can advance their gardening expertise and gain personal satisfaction through volunteer efforts. The volunteer aspect of the MG program allows individuals to dedicate their time and talents to enhancing the quality of life for citizens in their community using the science and art of horticulture.
In honoring this mission, the Nueces Master Gardeners provide this scholarship opportunity to a TAMU-CC junior or senior student who is majoring in education or science with a concentration in horticulture, botany, entomology, plant ecology or related fields. Click here for application.
