Scholarship Luncheons 


2018 WAEF Scholarship Celebration Luncheons

Each spring the Washington Apple Education Foundation awards scholarships to deserving young people from tree fruiting communities to help them pursue their educational dreams. A scholarship luncheon is held to honor the scholarship recipients and gather business, industry and community members for an afternoon of celebration of tomorrow’s leaders. Funds raised through the event support the WAEF scholarship program.
