The Chanticleer Scholarship


The Chanticleer Scholarship in Professional Development offers public garden professionals financial support for academic training to improve their leadership skills. The scholarship has two core components:

1. Support of an academic experience and
2. Support of travel to meet with leaders to build on the academic experience.

The program is aimed at individuals who are in, or hope to move into, leadership positions and feel a need for more training and exposure. The Chanticleer Foundation offers this Scholarship in the belief that a stronger and more creative staff results in better public gardens, gardens that focus on their missions and capitalize on their unique opportunities.

The Scholarship enables public garden professionals to undertake the necessary coursework to improve their leadership skills as well as offering an opportunity to meet leaders of the field and see their work in action. Chanticleer broadly defines "leadership training" in order to encourage creative thinking. A wide range of leadership programs, from seminars and workshops to certificate- and degree-granting programs are eligible.

The Scholarship is a collaboration between the applicant, his/her employer, and Chanticleer. Applicants must be currently employed at a public garden, have the support of his/her employer and have worked there for a minimum of three years. As a demonstration of commitment and support, the employer and the applicant are expected to contribute as best they can to the costs of the training program. The contributions can be financial, the giving of time, or by other means.

Contact with leaders in the field is an integral part of the Scholarship. Following the completion of the training program, Scholars will propose gardens and cultural institutions they would like to visit and/or individuals they would like to meet. Chanticleer will work with the Scholar to develop a travel program and underwrite the costs of the experience. The Scholarship also includes an opportunity to visit Chanticleer and meet with staff.

Applications are due July 1 and November 1. To apply for the Scholarship, please complete the application form below and submit all application materials to admin@chanticleergarden.org, or mail to Chanticleer Scholarship, 786 Church Road, Wayne, Pennsylvania 19087.
