Strawberry Scholarships Build American Dreams

Each path to the American Dream is uniquely personal, but for many education provides a powerful launching point to a better future.

Since 1995, the California Strawberry Growers' Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $2.01 million to 865 students. This fund depends on contributions from growers and allied industry members to support these students throughout their education.

The strawberry industry begins and ends with the farm workers. This statewide scholarship program demonstrates that strawberry farmers highly value the contributions of farm workers and promotes the economic and civic importance of the strawberry industry in local communities. Scholarship recipients depend on the generosity of people like you. We ask for your continued contribution to the many dreams and goals of these hard working students. and their families.

We thank you on behalf of our grateful scholarship recipients and their families!
