Peter F. Stetson Scholarship Award

The Peter F. Stetson Scholarship is awarded annually by the Culpeper Garden Club to graduating high school seniors in Culpeper County who are continuing their education in horticulture or agriculture at community college, college or university.  The scholarship is merit based and awarded to students for excellence in their high school agriculture or horticulture program of studies.  

The scholarship is in memory of Peter Stetson, a long-time member of the Culpeper Garden Club.  Peter’s love of history and gardening came together at his home, Roseland Farm, in Jeffersonton, Virginia.  His steadfast involvement in the garden club spanned over 20 years, in which he served in many different roles.  As a college educator in his later years, endowing a scholarship in his name seemed most befitting.
