Vineyard Team Educational Scholarship
A community funded scholarship for college students whose parents work in members' vineyards and wineries.
Since its inception in 2015, the fund has awarded over $75,000 in higher education scholarships base on academic excellence, financial need and community involvement. Many recipients have been first generation college students. While power comes in numbers, even one supporter can make a life-changing impact on a student. YOU can be that supporter.
"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, 2017 Recipient
