EAST WENATCHEE — Incoming and current college students who are migrant farmers or their children can apply for a new scholarship of up to $2,000.

The Miguel R. Velásquez Migrant Education Foundation (MRVMEF), which began this year, is a scholarship program started by Rosi Valásquez, daughter of the foundation’s namesake. Seven students will get $12,000 divided among them for the winter quarter.
