The Men’s and Women’s Garden Club of Minneapolis (MWGCM) is interested in home gardening, landscaping, and environmental stewardship. We award $1,000.00 scholarships to students of horticulture, and any Minnesota student who is currently working towards a degree and career in horticulture, landscaping, or a related professional area, are encouraged to apply. Over the last twenty-five years we have awarded over $72,000.00 to students whose career goals are consistent with the interests of the members of MWGCM.
