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 Phil Jenkins Memorial Scholarship was established by the Yakima Pomological Society and the Washington State Horticultural Association Research and Scholarship Foundation. Applicants for the Phil Jenkins Memorial Scholarship must be from from the Yakima valley that plan to return to the Yakima valley and work in the tree fruit industry. Other than the aforementioned requirements, this is open to most candidates. Dollar amounts for this scholarship will vary. Applications run from the Fall until the due date.
