Greenhouse Scholars

The Greenhouse Scholars program is looking for high school seniors from Colorado, Illinois and Georgia who are planning to attend a four-year accredited academic institution.

This is a program for students who have a financial need and have demonstrated leadership ability.

They offer a scholarship of up to $5,000 per year that is renewable for four years.


The deadline is January 4, 2016.
