Saturday, July 8th (5pm) Recognition Dinner and Fundraiser

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.

2017 Scholarship Fundraising Campaign Kick Off!

We are kicking off this campaign to give donors like yourselves the opportunity to help the Bay Area Gardeners Scholarship Foundation (BAGSF). Our mission to provide scholarships to deserving low-income students in the pursuit of fulfilling their higher educational goals and in most cases the first in their family to further their studies beyond high school.

BAGSF celebrates its 11th Anniversary this year. To date we have awarded a total of 202 scholarships to deserving students. We have begun our 2017 fundraising campaign to ensure each student selected will receive a scholarship for $2,000. In 2016, the Board decided to provide Chromebooks to all the recipients in addition to the scholarship moving forward.

You have an opportunity to make a huge difference in the life of a student. These students have studied hard to get where they are today and are now ready to go to the next level of pursuing a college degree in a special area of interest that they feel passionate about.

BAGSF motto is Motivate, Encourage, and Invest in our future leaders!
