The Blades of Green Scholarship Fund

Blades of Green was founded in 1989 just outside of Annapolis, Maryland. They have always placed an emphasis on organic-based and bay-friendly lawn care techniques and products. As Maryland locals, the protection of the environment and our water sources is near and dear to Blades of Green. Advancements in environmental engineering, plant sciences, environmental sciences, green technology, and related fields starts with a focus on environmental education.

Blades of Green has created a merit-based scholarship fund for individuals seeking undergraduate or graduate level education in environmental studies or related fields. Mark and Brad Leahy have created a $1,000 scholarship for the 2019 academic year. The scholarship will be awarded based on academic excellence, pursuit of further study in environmental education at an accredited college or university, and passion for further study. 

The scholarship will last for the duration of one year and be paid directly to the winning candidate to use towards tuition and board during the fall semester. 

2019 Academic Year Honorees 

This year our $1,000 scholarship to support the study of environmental education goes to Honey Brown!
