Sept 27, 2009 - The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation has expanded its brewing scholarship program. With the generous co-sponsorship of the American Brewers Guild, the foundation is offering a full-tuition scholarship to the Guild's Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering program.
The Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering course is a 22-week distance education program with a final week of residential instruction. The course is designed for brewers and homebrewers who lack formal training in brewing science and covers all the fundamentals of beer production and quality assurance.
The American Brewers Guild is a premier school for the craft brewing industry dedicated to providing a comprehensive learning experience that focuses on the technical, scientific, and operational matters and issues that brewers face in a craft brewing environment.
The American Brewers Guild is now accepting applications for the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation slot in the Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering course that runs from January 18, 2010 through June 25, 2010 with the final week of onsite instruction in Sacramento, California. The full application must be received no later than November 2, 2009. Note: This class is full except for this scholarship slot.
The scholarship is open to professional brewers and homebrewers from the states of Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Hawaii and California's northern geographic region (San Francisco/Monterey Bay areas and north). The full-tuition scholarship also includes a $500 stipend to help offset travel and lodging expenses for the residential week in Sacramento, California. Full details and scholarship applications are available at www.abgbrew.com.
