Clubs are listed by district on the website.  If you need help determining what district you reside in and how to contact the listed clubs, please contact the Scholarship Chairman. Affiliate clubs can not sponsor a student. Forms may be filled out online before printing. All applications must be sent to the GCFP State Scholarship Chairman in Pennsylvania listed on the website by the February 1, 2022 deadline.

A student who is a sophomore (or above) in college applying for the GCFP scholarship can also apply for a national scholarship by filling out both GCFP and National Garden Clubs (NGC) applications.  Only one NGC winner per state is allowed per year.
