Awards & Lectures

ASEV’s objectives to encourage and support education and research can be easily identified through our wide range of awards granted to those who have demonstrated meritorious accomplishments.The Society’s outreach extends from granting scholarships and outstanding presentation awards at the National Conference to deserving students enrolled in enology and viticulture academic programs, to exceptional researchers through our Best Paper Awards in the American Journal of Enology and Viticulture.  The ASEV Awards Committee also recognizes one exceptional individual annually for his or her contributions to the Society and/or the wine and grape industry overall.

This section includes information and past recipients of ASEV scholarships, best student presentation awards, best paper awards, the Merit Award and distinguished research lecturers.
