The Washington Apple Education Foundation is the charity of the tree fruit industry. Their mission is to impact lives through access to educational opportunities. Investors in the WAEF are making dreams come true for men and women improving their lives through higher education. Every year, the Washington Apple Education Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships to deserving students on behalf of tree fruit industry families, employers and supporters.
The Fruit Packers Supply Scholarship will be given to college juniors and seniors from the Yakima Valley enrolled full-time in the agriculture departments at Washington State University and studying for a career in Washington's tree fruit industry. Applicants must be a full-time student residing in (or near) Pullman and attending classes on campus. Dollar amounts for the scholarship will vary. Applications run from the Fall until the due date.
