Scholarships And Mini-Grants
The GCH is proud to support our Harwich youth in learning about our natural world. It is our hope that by studying the environment, the next generation will understand how to respect it and care for it. To that end, we offer a $3,000 scholarship every year to a local college student who is studying environmental studies, botany, horticulture, landscape design or other related fields such as conservation, forestry, water purification, oceanography, and marine biology. The scholarship is awarded after her/his successful completion of a freshman year at an accredited four-year college.
We are also pleased to announce our “Earth First” mini-grants to local educators pursuing projects to promote environmentally friendly practices. Two mini-grants of up to $500 each are available yearly to Harwich educators.
