Event description

Description

In 2006, BAGSF awarded its’ first scholarships to students from the Bay Area where a large immigrant community resides and seeks higher education but lacks financial resources. The lack of financial resources combined with social isolation pose a barrier to many young people who must juggle family, work, and school.
Our founder, Catalino Tapia realized scholarships would greatly help relieve the financial pressures associated for youth pursuing a higher education.
To date, we have awarded 202 scholarships to deserving students fulfilling their dreams of attending a college or university of their choice. Many of these recipients are now professionals contributing back to the community. We currently have one recipient on the board of directors of the Bay Area Gardeners Scholarship Foundation (BAGSF).

In 2017, BAGSF will award scholarships of $2,000 to thirty recipients. Two of the thirty recipients who display exceptional community involvement and academic achievement will receive an additional $1,000. These scholarships are open to high school seniors expected to graduate in the spring of 2017, high school graduates, GED recipients, and students already enrolled in a college or university. Our scholarships are renewable but applicants will need to apply each year using the most current scholarship application.
