California Strawberry Scholarships
The California Strawberry Scholarship Program has awarded more than $2 million to hundreds of children of strawberry farmworkers. Countless students and graduates are pursuing their passions and working in careers that span a wide range of professions. Additionally, many return to their hometowns to give back to their local communities and serve as inspirational role models.
Scholarship awards are intended to provide assistance with tuition, room and board, textbooks, and other educational expenses associated with college enrollment.
• First-time applicants must have a parent that is currently employed as a California strawberry fieldworker for the current and prior two harvest seasons. (Applicants may also qualify if they are employed as a California strawberry fieldworker).
• Full-time enrollment in a trade school, community college, four-year university, or graduate/professional program during the period for which scholarship is requested.
• Maintain a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or greater.
