Overview:

Horace M. Thayer Scholarship Program

The Horace M. Thayer Scholarship Program provides financial support for university and college students through scholarships to foster a greater appreciation of shade trees and promote the science and practice of professional arboriculture in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Applicants must be enrolled in a major, minor, option, or program related to the practice of arboriculture and urban forestry at an accredited college or university.

Scholarship award amounts are $3,000 each. The award is non-renewable but can be applied for annually. All awards will be paid directly to the educational institution attended by the recipient in two equal payments. Mid-year proof of enrollment and a minimum 2.5 GPA is required prior to the second payment. A student may apply for both the Fran Ward Women in Arboriculture and Horace M. Thayer Scholarships, but no student may receive both scholarships concurrently.
