The Ellen Brokaw House Farm Workers! Scholarship

 Apply Now! Due June 3

 We are pleased to offer this scholarship to students whose parents are farm workers in Ventura County. The mission of House Farm Workers! is to promote the provision of safe, decent and affordable housing for farm workers. Along with access to safe housing, we believe that all members of our community can benefit from opportunities for greater education. This scholarship reflects our commitment to making sure our farm worker families can thrive.

 

We will be awarding two students each with a $1,000 scholarship. The scholarship is named in honor of Ellen Brokaw, founding chairwoman of House Farm Workers! A prominent member of Ventura County's agricultural community, involved in production of lemons, avocados and nursery stock, she has been an inspirational leader in the long campaign to improve the lives of farm workers and their families.
