NaturaLawn, Frederick, Maryland, is now accepting applications for the Dan Collins Scholarship Award. First introduced during the 2017 annual franchise owners’ meeting, the award is in memory of Dan Collins, a past franchise owner who passed away from cancer in 2005.

Collins was a “larger than life” person who always had a funny story to share, an encouraging word for his fellow owners and a big heart for giving his best to help others. His efforts in promoting NaturaLawn and his franchise in the Richmond, Virginia, area can be summed up by a simple five-word question which he was so fond of saying; “Can I get you started?”

The Dan Collins Scholarship Award currently provides three stipends to the winning students: $4,000 for first place, $1,000 for second place and $500 for third place to be used towards their college education. Application submissions to The Dan Collins Scholarship Award (including all essays, letters of recommendation and transcripts) should be postmarked no later than May 15, 2021, for this year’s award.

The application and criteria for applying can be found on NaturaLawn’s website.
