PRESS RELEASE: Children of California Strawberry Farmworkers Awarded Educational Scholarships


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.
