The Florida Strawberry Growers Association has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships since 1983. Scholarship applications are ready for pick up or download beginning in June each year and are usually due by the middle of September that same year.
Funding for FSGA scholarships comes from the sales of nine flats of berries that are donated by strawberry growers during the Best Flat Contests in February and March each year at the Florida Strawberry Festival.
Due to the uncertainty of events due to COVID, we have decided to discontinue the FSGA Ambassador Program for the 2021-2022 season.
The Florida Strawberry Growers Association offers scholarships to encourage young men and women to continue their education beyond high school. The committee will determine the amount of the scholarship, but none will be less than $500.00.
Eligible students must be an enrolled college undergraduate or a high school graduate and submit a letter of intent to attend college
Applications must be submitted and completed by October 1st. No incomplete or late applications will be considered.
