The Riverside Garden Club is offering two scholarships to high school seniors.

If you are a Riverside resident and a high school senior who plans to attend a four year university to major in horticulture, environmental studies, botany, forestry or other related field of science, we encourage you to submit an application for the Riverside Garden Club’s 2013-2014 Scholarship. This year the club will award two $500.00 scholarships.

Please note that the application deadline is March 15, 2013. You may download a copy of the scholarship application directly from our website at or pick one up from your local high school counselor. For students who are home schooled or attending private out-of-area schools, download an application from the club’s website and send the completed form and accompanying documents to Mrs. Joyce Van Cura, 181 Scottswood Road, Riverside, IL 60546.
