College Scholarship

"This scholarship will allow me to focus on my efforts to increase the representation of women of color in the hard sciences, and increase awareness about sustainability and environmental justice." Georgina Rodriguez, 2014 Recipient


Since its inception in 2014, the Vineyard Team Educational Scholarship has awarded $20,000 in funds to children of farmworkers who are pursuing higher education. These scholarships help fund the college education of students who are the relatives of farm workers working for a Vineyard Team member organization. Scholarships are awarded based on academic excellence and financial need. 

In 2016, four outstanding young people were awarded $2500 each.  All are first generation college students with a unique story and commendable goals. 

  • Leonardo Ruiz, Santa Maria - father is a grape harvester for Talley Vineyards.






"Earning this scholarship will be further testimony that my family's support has guided me through a great path and that a great future is ahead." Josue Flores, 2014 Recipient



100% of donations to the Vineyard Team Educational Scholarship are applied to scholarship funds.  Your donation will be used to help students like these continue their education.

Applications for the 2017 Vineyard Team Educational Scholarship will be available in January 2017.
