Last chance to apply for this year’s AWAC scholarship

The 2019 Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology (ASVO) scholarship to attend the Advanced Wine Assessment Course (AWAC) administered by the Australian Wine Research institute (AWRI) closes on Friday 3 May 2019.

The ASVO scholarship is a nationally competitive scholarship which offers high-achieving individuals an opportunity to undertake professional development in wine assessment.

The ASVO scholarship is part of the ASVO awards for excellence program which has attracted a high calibre of entrants and are now recognised within the industry as a demonstration of expertise for wine industry professionals to aspire to and achieve.

The ASVO awards aim to promote excellence through recognition and reward of high achievers in innovative practice; those who are striving to raise practice standards and, individuals who, through their professionalism, provide a model of practice which others seek to emulate.

The ASVO scholarship will be offered to one talented individual to attend the AWRI’s four-day intensive Advanced Wine Assessment Course in November 2019.

Eligible applicants must be financial members of the ASVO, applications can be made either online or submitted via email and will be judged by an independent panel.

Applications for the 2019 Scholarship close on Friday 3 May 2019.
