In 2020, Yuengling announced its Diversity in Brewing Scholarship program in partnership with both USFSP Brewing Arts Program and Pink Boots Society. The scholarships are in addition to other grants made over the past year awarded to up-and-coming brewers, and are a key part of Yuengling’s commitment to cultivating a more inclusive brewing community.
 

Background
Yuengling’s scholarship program started in 2017 with a partnership with the University of South Florida St. Petersburg (USFSP) Brewing Arts Program to provide a tuition scholarship, now known as the Yuengling Veteran Award, to aspiring brewers. The Yuengling Veteran Award grants a student, who previously served in the military, the opportunity to learn foundational brewing knowledge via online courses and then complete hands-on training with a local brewery. In 2019, Yuengling and Pink Boots Society launched the Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship Program as part of Yuengling’s multi-year commitment to the Pink Boots Society. The scholarships can be used to enroll in brewing courses at up to seven universities across the country.
