2020 Friends of the Fair Student Scholarship Awards Announced
Each year, the Friends of the California State Fair Student Scholarships help our state’s most promising students achieve their goals and realize their dreams by granting scholarships to a broad range of academic studies.
These awards are presented to college students and graduating high school seniors at the California State Fair Gala presented by Friends of the Fair, to students who exhibit academic excellence, leadership potential, civic accomplishments, and a strong sense of personal commitment to continuing their education. The Gala dinner sponsors, ticket buyers, and our live and silent auction sponsors provide a majority of the funding for the scholarships. Due to COVID-19 the 2020 Gala was cancelled, but the Friends of the Fair wanted to award and acknowledge the deserving students despite the cancellation of their fundraising event.
This year, Friends of the Fair awarded twenty-six students $44,000 in scholarships for the 2020-21 academic year. These students represent twenty California cities.
The Ironstone Concours Foundation/Friends of the California State Fair also provides $5,000 to be awarded to one outstanding candidate. Please congratulate all twenty-six students for their achievements and recognize the recipient of the Ironstone Concours Foundation/ Friends of the California State Fair Scholarship Tiffany Ng.
