As a 6th generation brewery, we are dedicated to creating opportunities for the next generation of talented brewers. Through these opportunities, we aim to cultivate a more inclusive brewing community. We continue to support aspiring beer professionals through meaningful partnerships and programs that promote education, career development, inclusivity and diversity.
Starting in 2017, we have partnered 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, we announced the first-ever Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship. In partnership with the Pink Boots Society, this scholarship was created to encourage women beer professionals to advance their careers through education.
In fall 2020, we will launch Diversity in Brewing Scholarships alongside our partners the Pink Boots Society and USFSP Brewing Arts Program. More information on how to apply will be made available in the coming weeks.
