Annual Scholarships for FFA Students
Although it will take a few years for Adega Vinho to reach profits, we are honored to already provide annual college scholarships. These are granted to graduating high school seniors participating in FFA who have an interest in studying viticulture in college. Qualifying seniors at the following Texas high schools may apply for a $1000 scholarship (one scholarship is awarded per school):
- Fredericksburg High School in Fredericksburg, Texas
- Lyndon B. Johnson High School in Johnson City, Texas
All applications are due by April 15th each year. Scholarships are awarded before graduation in May in coordination with each school's FFA sponsors.
