2017 Scholarship Recipients!

The Washington Apple Education Foundation (WAEF) awarded 251 new and renewing students with scholarship support this spring.  Funding for the awards was raised through voluntary contributions from members of the tree fruit industry and its suppliers and service providers.  In total, this year's scholarship recipients are receiving just under $1,000,000 in educational awards.

 Most students receiving WAEF scholarships share a common link of parent employment in the tree fruit industry.  WAEF scholarship recipients are pursuing a wide variety of degrees and career paths.  Awards may be used by their recipients at accredited two-year colleges, four-year public and private universities and technical/vocational colleges.

Deadline for applications to be submitted was March 1, 2017

The review process requires several weeks with lots of involvement from review committee volunteers to determine recipients for each of the 100+ individual awards.

All students will be notified in May as to the award outcomes.
