Hi SHIFT blog!

My name is Roxanne Nichols and I am the Outreach Manager for LawnCare.net, a website about all things lawn care & maintenance. We launched a brand new scholarship on February 12th for a student pursuing a career in a field related to horticulture, landscape architecture, or environmental studies I came across your blog and wanted to reach out to you to see if you’d be able to post our new scholarship opportunity so that some NCSU landscape architecture students can be in the know. I am handling the application process and would love our inaugural year of this program to be a success so that we can continue to offer it in future years! Here is some basic information about the scholarship:


Sustainable Lawn Care Leaders Scholarship

  • $500 scholarship to be applied to fall 2013 semester tuition
  • Applicants must be undergraduate students, US citizens or legal residents, enrolled full-time, and be committed to pursuing a career in horticulture, landscape architecture, or a related environmental field
  • The ideal applicant will display a passion for sustainable practices in his/her industry through experience, field of study, and/or the written response
  • Application period is February 13-July 1, 2013
  • Details & application instructions can be found at http://www.lawncare.net/scholarship


Please let me know if you are willing to help us get the word out to students on your website. I am attaching a one-page info sheet about the scholarship that can be distributed to students, hung in the hallways, etc, as well. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or Erin Devine, Assistant Website Manager, at 404-475-0735, or just email me back.

Thank you!
