Davis, Calif.—The American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) awarded $100,000 in scholarships at its 2017 Annual Conference, at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue in Bellevue, Wash.. The 37 viticulture and enology students who received scholarships were honored along with the 2017 Best Student Presentation award winners at reception at the end of the conference. Of the 37 recipients, two students: Megan Hall of Cornell University, New York, and Sydney Morgan of the University of British Columbia, Canada, were the first to receive ASEV’s new Presidents’ Award for Scholarship, a scholarship for students who exceeded scholarship expectations and showed exceptional leadership potential. “We increased our scholarship funding by 33% this year by introducing the Presidents’ Award for Scholarship in enology and viticulture and finding two amazing recipients for this honor,” outgoing ASEV President Nichola Hall of Scott Labs said in the press release announcing the scholarship winners.
