These scholars are literally seeding the future.

Annually, The Garden Club of America awards over $300,000 in scholarships to outstanding college, graduate and post-graduate scholars who are working in areas related to the GCA’s purpose. Many of these scholars are literally seeding the future with their important work in plant collection, plant care and plant exploration.

Michael Dosmann, keeper of the Living Plants Collection at the Arnold Arboretum and Terry Huang, Living Collections Fellow, both past recipients of the GCA RHS Interchange Fellowship, oversee special collections at Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum recognized for research and conservation value.
