Migrant Farmworker Baccalaureate Scholarship
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial support to a deserving student with a history of migrating for employment in agriculture who has successfully completed one year of college. This support will cover expenses beyond what the youth is entitled to in federal/state and other scholarship assistance. This scholarship is designed to assist the youth in obtaining a baccalaureate degree without being encumbered with substantial debt.
This scholarship is made available through a generous endowment from a concerned individual for the education of children of migrant farmworkers. The donor wishes to remain anonymous.
The award will provide up to $2,000 per year for a maximum of three years and, if needed, additional support not to exceed $2,000 per year for three years for repayment of approved educational loans accrued for post-secondary education resulting in a baccalaureate degree. The student has the option to apply for two additional years of financial assistance at the same level for graduate studies.
