Since its inception in 2015, the Vineyard Team Educational Scholarship has awarded $50,000 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 2017, 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.
  • Gabriela Garcia, King City - father is an irrigation specialist for McIntyre Vineyards.

" It is hard to help support five siblings, but it is why I try so hard and stay up late to study.  It is why I do what I do."               --Gabriela Garcia, 2017 Recipient
