If you have the plans of enrolling for the Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering course then here is the good news for you! The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation is expecting applications for its wonderful Glen Hay Falconer Scholarship 2021. 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 Bay/Monterey Bay areas and north). The Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering (“IBS&E”) course is a 22-week distance education program with a final week of residential instruction in Middlebury, Vermont.
The mission of the Foundation is to contribute to the Northwest craft brewing community by providing opportunities for professional and aspiring brewers to further their knowledge and expertise. Since 2004, the Foundation has granted a total of 43 brewing education scholarships to brewers from throughout the Pacific Northwest. The main motive of the program is the advancement of the candidates who are truly interested in advancing their education with the help of some funds. The program is specially designed to advance the field and careers of the individual through advanced courses.
The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation is a non-profit organization created to commemorate and celebrate the life, interests, and good works of a well-loved and leading Northwest brewer. The Foundation is a beneficiary of Yakima Chief-Hopunion’s Falconer’s Flight initiative. Falconer’s Flight is an exclusive proprietary blend created to honor and support the legacy of Glen Hay Falconer and many notable breweries have developed beer around the Falconer Flight hop. The Foundation also produces the Sasquatch Brewam golf tournament pairing all levels of golfers and beer lovers with celebrity brewers.
