Operating separately from its parent American Wine Society organization, the American Wine Society Educational Foundation (AWSEF) is designed to aid men and women entering the wine industry by providing supplementary financial resources. It is the Foundation's premise that there is an acute need for the professional development of qualified scientists to ensure the growth of the American wine industry. Because of this, we urgently need trained professionals to undertake studies in enology, viticulture and health aspects of food and wine.
The American Wine Society Educational Foundation's mission is to support educational and research activities that will advance the viticultural and enological sciences to achieve a world-class North American wine industry. Specifically, The Foundation plans to achieve its mission by providing academic scholarships and research grants to graduate students based on academic excellence and genuine interest in pursuing careers in wine-related fields.
