Attention RCMA employees and farm workers families!
Krome Educational Fund is available:
The Krome Educational Fund was established by Wm. H. and Phoebe Krome to help individuals with farm worker backgrounds, and their children, attain a higher standard of living than that into which they were born. The Fund will accomplish its purpose by providing financial assistance with the expenses of college education to those who otherwise could not attend college. An award, up to $2,000, is given to the individual(s) selected. The Redlands Christian Migrant Association administers the Fund under guidelines established by the RCMA Board of Directors.
The Krome Educational Fund is available to individuals who are:
1) Employees of RCMA for at least three years at the time of their applications, and who had been farm workers, or
2) Children of those employees of RCMA, or
3) Children of other farm workers, if the children have been cared for in some manner by RCMA.
Scholarship recipients will be selected from these groups based on good work habits, and potential for college-level achievement.
Grants will be made for no more than one academic period (term or semester). Grantees may reapply for up three additional periods following the normal application process. The Designees may specify that an award winner will be considered for renewal of the award for up to three academic periods. Subsequent period grants will be conditioned on continuous enrollment during the academic year, satisfactory completion of all course work with a cumulative 2.5 GPA or better, and continuing financial need, among other factors.
Fall deadline: Completed applications must be postmarked no later than July 15, 2017. Applicants will be notified of determination by August 1, 2017.
Emailed or incomplete applications will not be accepted. Please send applications to:
