Yuengling and USF Brewing Arts Program Continue Partnership Through Veteran and Diversity in Brewing Scholarships  

Yuengling looks to create new opportunities for the next generation of aspiring brewers with $10,000 donation  

POTTSVILLE, PA—August 9, 2022—Today, D.G Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery®, announced the continuation of its partnership with the University of South Florida’s St. Peterburg campus (USFSP) Brewing Arts Program with a $10,000 donation dedicated to funding the brewery’s two longstanding scholarship opportunities at USFSP, the Diversity in Brewing Scholarship and Yuengling Veteran Scholarship.  

Awarded in February, Yuengling’s $5,000 Diversity in Brewing Scholarship is presented annually to an individual from a traditionally underrepresented population and covers the cost of tuition to USFSP’s Brewing Arts Certificate program for the upcoming spring semester.  

Separately, upholding the brewery’s long-term support of the military and veteran communities, Yuengling’s second scholarship opportunity, the $5,000 Yuengling Veteran Scholarship, provides one veteran with full funding to attend USFSP’s Brewing Arts program. Recipients of the Yuengling Veteran Scholarship will be announced ahead of the program’s August 2022 session. 

“As four women helping to lead America’s Oldest Brewery, my sisters and I understand the importance of shaping opportunities for anyone interested in pursuing their passion in brewing,” said Jennifer Yuengling, Vice President of Operations and 6th generation family member, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “We’re raising our glasses to bettering the brewing industry and are proud to help support the development of the next generation of brewers through these scholarships.” 

The Brewing Arts program is a collaboration between USF’s College of Arts and Sciences and several local and national breweries. Launched in 2015, the online program is designed for brewers ranging from hobbyists to enthusiasts looking to make a career in the industry by working in or opening a brewery one day. 

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Yuengling again this year and to continue building on the success we’ve seen in our program thanks to these scholarships,” said Jennifer Sedillo, program director of the Brewing Arts program. “Diversity is an ongoing area of concern in both our program and the industry at large, and we hope to continue progress on this issue by creating opportunities for underrepresented groups with these scholarships and Yuengling’s support.”
