Together with Beer.Diversity. and Niagara College, we are pleased to announce the establishment of the Dominion City Beer. Diversity. Scholarship.
This scholarship will be awarded annually to one outstanding senior level student in the Niagara College Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management program with a background presently underrepresented in the brewing industry.
The scholarship is two-fold; it includes $1,000 towards the recipient's tuition and will be followed by a paid eight-week internship at Dominion City upon completion of study. The focus of the internship will be on beer production, covering everything from wort production and cellaring to packaging and lab work. Recipients will learn how to apply theory into day-to-day life as a working brewer. Our intention is to provide talented brewers presently underrepresented in Ontario's craft beer industry with valuable first-hand experience to jump-start a successful career in the field.
We believe an inclusive and diverse craft beer scene will lead to a better community and ultimately, a stronger industry.
Interested applicants can reach out to Niagara College's office of scholarships and bursaries to learn how to apply.
