FULL LIST: Washington Apple Education Foundation Awards Scholarships to Students

The Washington Apple Education Foundation (WAEF) has given scholarships to 147 students in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties for the upcoming academic year. These beneficiaries, who have ties to the tree fruit sector, are among the 387 scholarships awarded by WAEF this year.

The tree fruit industry sponsors scholarships through various fundraisers, memorial scholarships, and annual grants totaling more than $1 million. To be considered, students must submit either the Universal application for anyone having ties to Washington’s tree fruit business, or the Vocational/Technical application for high school seniors and current college students pursuing a career in the industry.

WAEF scholarship recipients receive not just financial aid, but also access to the Beyond the Scholarship Program, which offers a wide range of support services throughout their academic careers. This includes workshops, virtual mock interviews, guided resume sessions, monthly sessions on various themes, personalised care packages, and other benefits.

The initiative has been quite effective, with an 89% retention rate for scholarship renewals. Furthermore, 85% of WAEF students earn their degrees in four years or less, with 78% of recipients being first-generation college students.
