WBC Scholarship Fund Application 2017 SANTA ROSA
I'm so happy you are interested in applying for a Scholarship to the Wine Bloggers Conference!

Scholarship Applications for the TENTH annual Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Rosa, CA, from November 10-12, 2016.

The deadline to apply is September 1st, 2017 (subject to change). This allows everyone to make travel arrangements. However, I encourage you NOT to delay in registering for the Wine Bloggers Conference itself, as it may sell out before the deadline. If you are planning on attending even without Scholarship assistance, please register yourself and submit a request for reimbursement if you are awarded a scholarship.

You are welcome to apply again even if you have previously received a grant, but please be aware that there is lifetime benefit limit of $1500. If you are awarded a second grant, it will be capped at this amount, minus your previous grant.

Please note that if you are granted a scholarship, you will be send a code of conduct and expectation. Failure to agree and adhere to these rules will result in a revocation of your scholarship and forfeiture of any funds.
