The Artelia Bowne Court Scholarship Fund:


Garden Club Scholarships Recipients for 2016 – 2017

The Indian Village Branch of the Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association awards the Artelia Bowne Court scholarships to help local students complete their undergraduate education. Established in 1983, the ABC Scholarship Fund was named after a beloved late member. This year, the Indian Village Woman’s Garden Club Education committee is pleased to award six scholarships to students for the 2016-2017 school year. The amount of scholarship money awarded to each student is based on criteria set by the club, takes into consideration academic excellence, professional recommendation, and submitted application information. Please join with us in congratulating these deserving students. We are proud to announce the recipients of the Artelia Bowne Scholarship Awards for the 2016-2017 school year.

It is through the hard work and commitment of the Indian Village Woman’s Garden Club, the efforts of the Holiday Tour homeowners and the support of neighbors and friends who attend the Indian Village Holiday Home Tour and the first annual VIP Gala Night that the scholarships are possible. Over $200,000.00 has been awarded to students in the past 33 years. The Indian Village Woman’s Garden Club feels strongly that they have joined hands with the community to make an important contribution to our neighborhood and our city. Education is an investment in our future, congratulations to this year’s recipients!

Each month several recipients will be featured in ongoing articles about the ABC Scholarships and the goals and aspirations of the award winning students. We can all be so proud of these students who will “make a difference”.
