CFLCA Farmworker Scholarship Applications now Available
The California Farm Labor Contractor Association has established a scholarship fund to benefit farmworkers, and the children of farmworkers who plan to pursue higher education. Over the past four years, CFLCA with the help of generous sponsors has awarded over $135,000 in college scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to $2,000 each. This year we hope to award up to $40,000 in scholarships to qualifying applicants.
To qualify, the student must be accepted and enrolled into an accredited to community college, or four-year college or university, while maintaining a minimum grade point average in either high school or college. The applicant or their direct family member, such as parent or sibling, must have been employed by a licensed farm labor contractor in the past 12 months.
