March 7th – Napa, CA—The Napa County Farm Bureau Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2022 Aldo Delfino Memorial Scholarship applications are now available for Napa County high school seniors pursuing college study of agriculture.
Each year the Napa County Farm Bureau Foundation, along with the JLD Ag Preservation Fund, awards scholarships to Napa County high school seniors who plan to pursue some form of college study of agriculture. The scholarships are made possible by the family of Aldo Delfino, the late Ag Commissioner of Napa County, who valued both the opportunity to college attendees and the opportunity to return to Napa County and serve the community and local agriculture. The Aldo Delfino Scholarship was established upon the death of Aldo in 1981 for the purpose of awarding scholarships, in his name, to local students planning to attend college and study some form of agriculture.
“The Aldo Delfino Memorial Scholarships are an important part of the work our foundation does on behalf of ag youth in Napa County,” said Ryan Klobas, Chief Executive Officer of the Napa County Farm Bureau. “Not only does the Napa County Farm Bureau represent the current generation of AG professionals in Napa County, we also strive to cultivate the next generation of AG professionals and leaders in the hopes they will return to Napa County and continue to serve our world-class farm community.”
Napa County high school seniors who plan on pursuing some form of agriculture in college are encouraged to apply. Scholarship applications are due on April 15 and applications can be found at www.napafarmbureau.org/foundation
