Scholarships for Children of Wine Industry Workers

Vineyard Team is excited to announce that applications are now open through March 31, 2023 for the Juan Nevarez Memorial Scholarship. Applicant or applicant’s parent/guardian must be employed or contracted by the vineyard and winery industry and live in California. Multi-year scholarship awards range from $1,000 to $6,000 per student per year. The number of scholarships awarded is based on fund availability.

Vineyard Team’s Juan Nevarez Memorial Scholarship makes multi-year, higher education investments in the children of vineyard and winery workers based on academic excellence, financial need, and community involvement. The majority of awardees are first-generation college students.

Multi-year recipient Alberto Gonzales says, “I am proud of breaking the cycle and being the change in my family as the first generation to go to college.”

Higher education is important to many students but paying for college can be challenging. This funding supports students and their families in achieving their dreams of successful graduation from a trade, or two- or four-year school to pursue a professional career. Students can apply online by going to vineyardteam.org/scholarship/apply. For additional information or questions, email alex@vineyardteam.org.
