Matt Courtright Brewing Scholarship:
We are in the process of funding this scholarship, from our own district general fund and from donations and fund raising events. Stone Brewing Co. has agreed to contribute to the fund with some of the proceeds from an upcoming release of a beer that Matt Courtright designed. We brewed it posthumously, and it will come out in January. The District Board will be investigating ways to continue to raise funds so we can make this scholarship an annual event. Here's how it will work:
First, we need 3-4 volunteers to serve on the scholarship committee. They will set the standard for scholarship application process, and will review the applications and select the winner.
So if you are interested in being part of this process, please contact Mitch directly at email@example.com
The scholarship will fund tuition for one of the 3 existing 2-week brewing schools that the MBAA puts on. See this link for details. http://www.mbaa.com/education/courses/. The winner will be able to choose the class, and we will then pay the tuition.
