The historic US brewery encouraging women to join the world of beer
According to the Brewer’s Association, less than 8% of all reporting breweries have a female brewer, and the Women in Brewing Scholarship Program is hoping to make strides in this gender-inclusive movement.
Seeking to rectify this, America’s oldest brewery, Yuengling, has launched spring scholarship which “aims to advance the careers of female brewers through education.”
Yuengling and the Pink Boots Society, a non-profit organisation which supports women in beer, launch the Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship Program last year. They are offering two more scholarships to women in the industry who are interested in developing their leadership skills and expanding their technical knowledge. Beer professionals can apply for up to $12,500 in scholarship funds to enrol in brewing courses at Cornell University, Cincinnati State, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, and the Siebel Institute of Technology.
The spring application period for the Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship will close on March 31, 2020. To find out more, click here.
