Congrats to 2022-23 Winners:

2023-24 Application Period opens July 2024

In an effort to promote higher education, we offer a scholarship program to full-time employees (year-round or seasonal) and their dependents employed by CLFP Processor and Supplier Host Council members.

This is a chance to offer the employees and dependents of employees from California member food-processing facilities the opportunity to earn a $500 or $1,000 scholarship to pursue higher education in California; a small expression of our appreciation to those members and their families for serving this important industry.

The scholarships will be awarded in any combination of $1,000 scholarships to undergraduate students enrolled in a four year accredited California college/university and $500 scholarships to students enrolled in a two year accredited California community college.

    • Four year accredited California college/university

  • GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Graduate students do not qualify for the CLFP Scholarship at this time
