The Mountain Garden Club established this scholarship program with the intent of encouraging post-secondary education in plant science disciplines such as Horticulture, Agriculture, Forestry, Environmental Science, Land Management and other related fields of study. The scholarship program was named in memory of Alice T. Madden, a lifetime member, who was dedicated to assisting the youth of the Mount Washington Valley pursue a higher education in any of the “green” educational disciplines.

Any graduating high school senior, with plans to enroll in these disciplines, or a post-secondary student, presently pursuing a course of instruction in these disciplines, who resides in the geographic area served by the Mountain Garden Club is encouraged to apply for this scholarship regardless of race, creed or gender. The Mountain Garden Club Scholarship Selection Committee will award scholarships from the qualifying applications received.  Financial need, academic achievement and interest in the stated field of study will be some of the criteria used to determine the awarding of these scholarships.
