Scholarship Programs


ASEV Scholarship Programs

The American Society for Enology and Viticulture annually awards numerous scholarships to students pursuing a degree in enology, viticulture, or in a curriculum emphasizing a science basic to the wine and grape industry.

We are now offering the following two scholarship programs:

  1. ASEV Traditional Scholarship – The scholarship awards for our traditional program are not in predetermined amounts. The amounts will vary from year to year depending on the number of qualified applicants.

    Within the Traditional Scholarship program, we offer a James Wolpert Scholarship Award for those who express an intent to work in the field of viticulture or enology extension. If you wish to be considered for this award, please include pertinent information in your letter of intent and a professional CV with the application.

  2. ASEV Presidents’ Award for Scholarship in Enology and Viticulture – This special scholarship will be awarded to two students that exceed the expectations of our traditional scholarship program. One scholarship in enology and one in viticulture will be awarded in the amount of $12,500 each.

    ASEV Presidents’ Award for Scholarship Application

All scholarship recommendations made by the Scholarship Committee are subject to final approval by the Board of Directors.

The Society does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, religion, gender, or physical/mental disabilities. The Society has no affiliation with the University of California or other institutions that may also offer scholarship programs.

Previous applicants and recipients are eligible to reapply each year in open competition with new applicants for the ASEV Traditional Scholarship. Recipients of the ASEV Presidents’ Award for Scholarship are not eligible to reapply. The ASEV reserves the right not to award scholarships at all in any given year.
