The Amherst Garden Club is offering a $1,000 scholarship for a college student who is a resident of Erie or Niagara County.

Applicants should have completed at least one year of study by May 2020. Since the funds are intended to be used for tuition, applicants must be enrolled in an accepted program for the 2020-2021 school year.

The student should be studying horticulture, landscape design, floriculture, conservation, ecology or another pertinent program.

The deadline to apply is June 20.
