Napa Valley Vintners Scholarship 2021

Napa Valley Vintners and United Negro College Fund have announced scholarship applications are now being accepted for students wishing to pursue a career in the wine industry. The first recipients will receive support toward college tuition this fall. Last September, the winery trade group committed $1 million to the fund, pledging $200,000 each year for the next five years, and has begun a fundraising effort to build the fund beyond that initial investment. Recipients will receive $5,000 each to assist with tuition up to four years for $20,000 total. Students in any year of college, freshmen to senior, as well as graduate students are eligible. Black/African American, Indigenous/Native American, Latinx, Asian American, Pacific Islander and other candidates of color are encouraged to apply. Qualifying institutions must have mentorship, internship and career placement programs in place to help students succeed in their careers beyond their studies. For the first round of scholarships there are four qualifying colleges and universities: Napa Valley College, Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo, Sonoma State University and University of California at Davis.

Apply by June 16 here.

Other Opportunities

Wine Unify: Elevate Award Opportunities

Wine Unify was founded on the belief that the wine industry wants and needs to have a more diverse set of representatives within it. This starts from the very beginning when someone is interested in wine - we want to welcome them. It then transitions as they grow within the wine industry - we want to elevate them. And finally, when successful and thriving, there is still more work to do - we want to amplify their incredible voices. We want to be a catalyst for change and feel strongly about inclusion within the wine industry. Our hope is that these initiatives will engage individuals who might otherwise feel excluded while simultaneously empowering the minority voices that exist within the wine industry today.
