Leaside Garden Society Founders' Scholarship

Our Mission:

To establish a friendly meeting place to share, encourage, award and educate on the fundamental values and principles of gardening, concerns about the environment and to create a horticultural legacy within the community;
To be an inspiration for gardening everywhere

The Leaside Garden Society (LGS) is offering one $1,000 (CDN) scholarship annually to a full time post-secondary student planning to enroll in the second, third or final year of a horticulture-related program from an accredited Canadian college or university.

This scholarship has been established to honour the initiative of those who in the 1980’s had the foresight and energy to form the Leaside Garden Society.  In its initial year, this scholarship is presented in memory of Edna Beange, a founding member of the Leaside Garden Society in 1986. Its objective is to provide financial support to a student who will advance the knowledge of horticulture within the community.

Eligibiiity Criteria - The candidate must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate program in horticulture or a related field of study such as botany, plant science, ecology, landscape architecture or environmental science from an accredited Canadian college or university.  Consideration will be given to a candidate pursuing studies at other recognized Canadian institutions, at the discretion of the selection committee. The one-year scholarship will be granted for the upcoming academic year.   Recipient may reapply for the scholarship in subsequent years.

Candidates who are present or previous residents of Leaside or a relative of a Leaside resident will receive extra consideration.  For the purpose of this scholarship, Leaside includes North and South Leaside, Bennington Heights and Thorncliffe Park.
