Overview:

The Federated Garden Clubs, Inc. will be awarding scholarships from monies donated by Connecticut Garden Clubs to students entering their junior or senior year or who are graduate students in any certified College or University. 

The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc., is an educational, charitable non-profit organization made up of 6,719 individual members and 128 clubs, along with 15 affiliate organizations. The strength and value of our clubs and their members has been gained from the accumulated knowledge of the past 86 years, and has enriched our homes, our gardens and our communities. These responsibilities we share have not diminished; there is still a great deal to be accomplished but as we work, compete, educate and learn, we will continue to meet these challenges with success.

The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc., is one of thirteen charter members of the National Council of State Garden Clubs, Inc., now known as the National Garden Clubs, Inc., which was organized on May 1, 1929, (two days after Connecticut's first meeting), and has had almost continuous representation on the National Board.
