Apply for a LEAF Scholarship
Since 1972, the California Landscape Contractors Association Auxiliary has offered scholarships to college and university students majoring in landscape related programs. In 1988, the Landscape Educational Advancement Foundation (LEAF) was formed to carry on the tradition of awarding financial aid to deserving students. MORE >>.
In 2022, LEAF’s scholarship selection committee reviewed 16 scholarship applications. Their selection criteria included career goals, outside activities, work experience, financial need, letters of recommendation and GPA in their major. Nine scholarship recipients were awarded a total of $42,500. The scholarships ranged from $800 to $12,000. MORE >>.
