CWA announces annual scholarships

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Lake County Chapter of California Women for Agriculture is offering scholarships from $500 to $2500 to graduating high school seniors and college or vocational students (regardless of gender) whose educational emphasis is related to agriculture and who will be attending a two- or four-year program as a full-time student.

Scholarship recipients will receive their scholarship at the beginning of the first semester conditioned on proof of full-time enrollment.

Selected students will be encouraged to attend a CWA Chapter meeting during the coming year to describe the course of study and how the scholarship has assisted in the pursuit of educational and career goals.

Students must:

• Be a resident of Lake County.
• Have a grade point average of 3.0 or greater
• Fill out the requisite scholarship application packet, which acknowledges a pursuit of a career related to agriculture. Applications which do not clearly convey the applicant’s pursuit of a career as it relates to agriculture will not be considered.
• Be willing to participate in an interview with the CWA Scholarship Committee if requested.

The application packet must include the CWA signed application form, a letter of recommendation, and a current or most recent transcript.

The application form is enclosed and must be received by CWA with all other required application material on or before April 11.

Applications without all required material or applications received late will not be considered.

Please send completed application material to California Women for Agriculture, Lake County Chapter, P.O. Box 279, Finley, CA 95435.

Please indicate “Scholarship Application” on the envelope. For more information, contact Sausha Racine at 707-245-4787 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
