The Milford Garden Club offers up to three to four college scholarships a year to high school seniors.  The monetary amount can vary each year, but is typically  between $1,000 and $1,500. Scholarships are offered to senior students in  the Huron Valley School system.

Applicants need to be accepted by an accredited college or university. Preference will be given to those students planning on majoring in horticulture, conservation, oceanography, landscaping, agriculture, environmental studies or related professions.  Selection is based on scholastic performance – 2.5 or higher grade point average, community and school participation and need for financial assistance.
