Vinequity is  excited to open our first round of scholarship application. We believe access to high quality wine education and the support to excel in such programs are vitally important to diversifying the ranks of the wine industry, especially in leadership roles.

We provide scholarships ranging from $250-$5000 to a range of top tier wine education programs such as the Court of Master Sommeliers, and the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. Scholarship applicants are invited to select the monetary amount and educational resources that will best aid them in their career trajectory.

 

We believe that education empowers professionals to higher levels of success and visibility within the wine industry.

The Vinequity Scholarship Fund is uniquely positioned to offer access to the full breadth of internationally recognized wine education programs, and centers BIPOC voices throughout the application and scholarship awards process.

Your contributions make a direct positive impact in diversifying our Canadian wine community.
