Gabriel Gomez-Sandoval Memorial Farmworker Scholarship

   CFLCA is proud to support the growth and development of the next generation by providing college and trade school scholarships for students who are farmworker employees (or their children) of California farm labor contractors.  

Since 2016, we have distributed over $300,000 in funding!

To accommodate the rising costs of tuition and fees, we are excited to announce that this year, CFLCA will award scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000! Thanks to the work of our scholarship committee and generous sponsors and donors, potential award amounts have been increased significantly from prior years. The application process is fairly easy with awards weighed higher for the children of CFLCA FLC member employees.

Watch our past recipient's success stories here   

Gabriel Gomez-Sandoval is the beloved son of CFLCA founder and first Executive Director, Guadalupe (Lupe) Sandoval. As a sophomore in High School, Gabriel was diagnosed with Leukemia. He battled this disease fearlessly and quietly, however he passed in 2005 as an optimistic and determined college student. Gabriel's dream was to become a teacher. His love for education and passion for giving back were the inspiration for this scholarship fund. 

2024 scholarship applications are currently under review of the Scholarship Committee - 2024 scholarship recipients will be announced here shortly.

Help FLC farmworker employees and their children with their educational pursuits AND feel great about it!

Thank you to all of CFLCA members and supporters for helping me accomplish my dreams. The CFLCA Farm Worker Scholarship has allowed me to attend and graduate from Grand Canyon University with my Bachelors Degree in Science in Nursing.

I am officially a registered nurse, working in the hospitals helping the community during this difficult time, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Your contribution and support goes a long way and truly impacts a students life.

Thank you,

Francisco Solis
