In its desire to perpetuate the future of the landscape industry, the CLCA's Landscape Educational Advancement Foundation (LEAF) fosters, promotes and supports the education of students pursuing careers in fields relating to the landscape contracting industry. Please note:
* Any student attending an accredited California community college or state university majoring in ornamental horticulture and taking a minimum of six (6) units is eligible.
* Applications must be typed or printed legibly.
* Three personal reference letters should be attached to and returned with the application. Reference letters from your most recent employer, ornamental horticulture instructor, counselor, club/activities advisor, or church leader are very helpful in assisting the scholarship selection committee in their selection of recipients.
* Applications are reviewed and graded based on financial need, career goals, outside activities, work experience, letters of recommendation and GPA in major. All information received is subject to verification.
Scholarships are available for students who will be continuing at their present college or who will be transferring to another accredited college in the coming fall.
Recipients will receive the actual funding only with official proof of enrollment for the fall semester.
