Scholarship Opportunity For High School Seniors - Start A Nursery Business

This is a great incentive for the older generation to share the love of gardening with the younger generation...

The $1,000 Somebody You Love College Scholarship

Start a nursery business... get your teen a college scholarship for $1000! Who is eligible?

You must be:

  • A High School Senior residing in the United States who will graduate high school in 2006.
  • Planning to pursue a degree at an accredited post secondary institution in the U.S.
  • Carrying a minimum 3.00 GPA at the end of your junior year of high school.
  • Note: Friends, or family of anybody associated with McGroarty Enterprises Inc. are not eligible to apply.
The application process is unique.

1. You must involve a parent, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, or other mature friend or family member in this project. The purpose of the Somebody You Love College Scholarship is to pair the student with a mature adult they love, admire and respect. The idea is to allow the student and the adult to share some quality time together, while at the same time learn the art of plant propagation, share a laugh or two, and the joy of seeing roots on your first successful batch of propagated plants.

2. You have to build and successfully propagate a variety of plants using the "Simple Homemade Plant Propagation System". The system is very easy and affordable to build, Click on the above link for detailed instructions. It should cost you less than $20.00, maybe as little as $5.00 if you have some second hand materials you can use.

You and your chosen adult get to choose the plants you'd like to propagate. If you follow the links on the "Simple Homemade Plant Propagation System" page they will lead you to all of the plant propagation instructions you'll need to be successful.

(Hint) Don't over complicate a simple thing. Softwood cuttings done in late spring or early summer are the easiest to do. You can have rooted cuttings in just 2 to 4 weeks. But if you are currently a high school junior or even a sophomore and are planning to apply for this scholarship in the future, you are also welcome to try hardwood cuttings as well as any kind of seeds you can think of. (We can not guarantee that this scholarship will be offered after 2006, but we certainly hope to make it available each year.)

3. Take photos of the plants you propagate, as well as photos of you and your chosen adult enjoying the process. You can even send us some homemade video of you and your chosen adult enjoying this process. We'd love to see that, but please keep it short, no more than 15 minutes.

4. If you send digital photos please send prints as well. Do not send more than five photos.

5. Write an essay about what you successfully propagated, what you gained from the experience, and what your long term goals are. You should also share a few words of wisdom you garnered from your chosen adult. The essay should be 400 to 700 words.

Keep in mind, The Somebody You Love College Scholarship is more about you spending time with your chosen adult than it is horticulture. It is my sincere hope that as you venture off to school, your chosen adult will have learned a fascinating and rewarding hobby they can enjoy for a long time, and of course cherish the time they spent with you on this project.

The deadline to get your packet in is July 31, 2006. A recipient will be chosen before September 1, 2006.

Mail your entry to:

The Somebody You Love College Scholarship
McGroarty Enterprises Inc.
P.O. Box 338
Perry, Ohio 44081

Be sure to mention that Chris Chandler recommended you!

Thank you, and enjoy the experience.
