The 2017 Tailor Made Lawns Scholarship Fund

As a locally owned company here in North Carolina, Tailor Made has always been passionate about being involved in our local community. This year, we’re excited to announce the 2017 Tailor Made Lawns Scholarship Fund for students studying environmental sciences and closely related fields. This scholarship will be for the 2017 fall semester and will be paid directly to the winning candidate for tuition and board.

This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student based on merit and passion for the enhancement of their local and global environment. Candidates will be evaluated according to letters of recommendation, academic records, and their passion for the environment. These qualifications will be demonstrated through faculty references, academic transcripts, SAT/ACT scores, and most importantly, a letter of intent written by the student. All eligible North Carolina students are encouraged to apply online or through the mail.


Students who meet the following criteria are encouraged to apply:

  • Current North Carolina resident.
  • Currently enrolled, or planning to be enrolled in an accredited college or university in the 2017 fall semester.
  • Currently pursuing studies in environmental engineering, plant sciences, environmental sciences, green technology, and related fields.
  • Possesses a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
