About The Grange Insurance Association Scholarship Fund

The Grange Insurance Association scholarship fund began with just a few hundred dollars in 1965. Since then, the fund has continued to grow due to the generosity and kindness of our donors. The annual scholarship is just one of the important ways Grange Insurance Association is committed to supporting our local communities across California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. We are excited to help more students prepare for higher education and achieve their dreams through these efforts.
