California Strawberry Growers' Scholarship Fund
Scholarship Sponsored by California Strawberry Commission
The California Strawberry Growers' Scholarship Fund provides more than $150,000 every year to support the higher education of children of strawberry field workers.
Since 1995, the California Strawberry Growers' Scholarship Fund, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has supported hundreds of students in their pursuit of a higher education – all the children of California strawberry field workers.
This program alone has funded students nearly $2 million to complete their bachelors' and associates' degrees, as well as advanced degrees in science, agriculture, medicine, and law.
