AGRICULTURAL scholarships

The California Table Grape Commission (commission), on behalf of the state’s table grape growers, offers agricultural scholarships to students residing in the Coachella or San Joaquin valleys.

Three $25,000 four-year agricultural scholarships are available to students who are interested in working in agriculture, specifically the table grape industry. The scholarships are available to graduating seniors and to high school graduates entering college for the first time, including family members of table grape growers.

Applicants must enroll full-time in a California college or university with a fall enrollment date and a declared major tied to a future in the California table grape industry. The scholarship is not available to students already enrolled in a college or university or those who are planning to pursue a two-year degree.

The California Table Grape Agricultural Scholarship Program was created in 2012 and is in addition to the Table Grape Field Worker Scholarship Program, which has been in place for 35 years.

New scholarship applications are now available for enrollment in the fall of 2020.

ABOUT California TABLE GRAPES

Californians have been cultivating grapes for more than two centuries. Today, 99 percent of U.S. table grapes are produced in California's warm, dry climate that is ideal for grape growing. With more than 90 grape varieties grown, California grapes come in three colors—green, red and black—and are in season from May through January.
