Field Workers Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $20,000
Awards Available: 6

California's fresh grape growers have long recognized the importance of supporting the communities where they live and work. Fresh grape growers throughout the state volunteer their time and service for associations, boards and charitable organizations. In addition, for over 30 years, California's table grape growers have supported their workers and their communities with the nation's first worker-focused scholarship program. Since 1985, 113 high school graduates in the table grape growing regions have received funding to help defray the cost of college education.

The commission is now accepting applications for the 2016 California Table Grape Field Workers Scholarship program. Up to three $20,000 scholarships to any four-year California college or university and up to three $3,500 scholarships to any junior or community college in California are available to table grape field workers and their children.

Applicants must be 2016 graduating high school seniors or high school graduates. To be eligible, the student must plan to attend school in California.

Additionally, one $20,000 scholarship for attending a four-year university in California is available to table grape field workers and their children working in the Delano/Porterville area. The scholarship was funded through donations in honor of Martin John Zaninovich (August 1923-December 2014) who was a life-long California table grape grower and a founder of the California Table Grape Commission.

The deadline for all field worker scholarship applications is 5 p.m. Friday, January 22, 2016.
