2019 applicants will be part of a pilot Wild Goat Edge program for young women entering Santa Rosa Junior College’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Department. Applications are due by April 15, 2019.

In addition to scholarship awards supporting their studies at SRJC, the WGEP will provide mentoring, opportunities for paid summer internships, and life skills workshops. After successful completion of a two-year program of studies at the SRJC, WGEP participants will be supported in transitioning to a four-year institution or entering the work force.

Five recipients will receive:

  • Scholarship awards from Wild Goat Edge to cover eligible, non-tuition educational expenses at SRJC (up to $7,500 per year for two years).
  • Free weeklong (required) residential summer camp at Cloverleaf Ranch.
  • Opportunities for paid internships in the agricultural field during school year and summers.
  • College and career counseling and mentoring through both SRJC and the Wild Goat Edge program.
  • Life skills training, including employment empowerment skills, through Wild Goat Edge.
  • Wild Goat Edge networking and advice during and after successful completion of the program.

Female or transgender female applicants from ag families must apply to both the Wild Goat Edge Program and enroll at Santa Rosa Junior College.

Applicants should also apply for the Doyle Scholarship and other financial aid by completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form and consulting the SRJC Scholarship Office for assistance.
