About

Washington Apple Education Foundation

The Washington Apple Education Foundation is the charity of Washington’s tree fruit industry. Our mission is to impact lives through access to educational opportunities.

For 25 years WAEF has awarded scholarships to the kids raised in the fruit growing regions of Washington. Our primary counties are Okanogan, Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Kittitas, Yakima, Benton, Franklin and Walla Walla.

We began providing scholarship training several years ago to provide potential applicants with resources on how to win scholarship money. Our training curriculum utilizes observations gathered through the review of hundreds of scholarship applications annually. We work with other scholarship providers in our region to keep content relevant and to track progress.

WAEF is funded by the growers, packers, suppliers and supporters of Washington tree fruit. Funding from the following entities helps to provide this website.
