Students must have been Kent County residents for at least two years prior to the application date and must be enrolled in, or have been accepted by, an accredited college or university to study plant and soil science or a horticulture-related field.

The Master Gardeners raise money for the scholarships during their annual plant sale, which is typically held annually on the last Saturday in April at the Delaware State University greenhouse.

To be eligible for the scholarships, the student must have a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale, include a short essay of ​their educational and career goals, and provide an official transcript from their current school. Two letters of reference or recommendation from a non-relative must also be included. One academic reference is preferred.
