The 2016 ASVO Scholarship to attend the Advanced Wine Assessment Course (AWAC) administered by the Australian Wine Research institute (AWRI) is now open.
The ASVO Scholarship is a nationally competitive scholarship which offers high‐achieving individuals an opportunity to undertake vocational or professional development in wine assessment.
The ASVO Scholarship is part of the highly valued 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 highly regarded four‐day
intensive Advanced Wine Assessment Course.
This award is sponsored by Seguin Moreau. General manager – Sales and Marketing Australia & New Zealand, Graeme Little is proud to align Seguin Moreau with the ASVO.
Little said, “This scholarship provides an opportunity to a wine industry professional to pursue an experience that, without the support of the ASVO and Seguin Moreau, would not be realised. Everyone needs opportunities and I see this scholarship as a chance for someone to further their education and follow their passion.“
Applications are online, open to all fields of study and there is no age limit for applicants.
Applications for the 2016 scholarship close on Friday 24 June.
