SCHOLARSHIPS

Millis Garden Club Scholarship

 

The Millis Garden Club offers a scholarship to high school seniors who will be college freshmen in the fall. 

High school award winners are announced at graduation.  Award checks are disbursed after proof of enrollment is provided.

The 2022 scholarship was $1,000 and was offered in memory of Janice Simpson, beloved long-time Millis Garden Club member and former Millis teacher. There was a huge outpouring of donations in Janice's memory. Thank you to all who contributed. See "News & Events" for information on our scholarship winner.
