Hey everyone, Nichole here! Normally my focus is on our chapters but I wanted to share a little information about our current scholarship and what you can expect from it!

Our friend Tom came to us with the idea for the Cultural Immersion Tour about 5 years ago and it quickly became a staple of our scholarship program. For many years we have provided our members the opportunity to take a 2 week trip around Bavaria immersing themselves in rich and historic brewing processes (and just a couple of liters of weissbier).

Recently one of our newer PBS members Dr. Catherine Brewer, who works for New Mexico State University, approached us with the idea of a new scholarship: one with more education and a chance to visit new places. We couldn’t say no!

They have faculty-led international programs, and this one is Dr. Brewer’s baby. I know the details are scant on our scholarship page so I wanted to make sure everyone had an idea of what this new scholarship opportunity is all about.

For the first year, the plan is to visit Belgium and The Netherlands. You will be visiting places like Cantillon, beer museums, a really cool brewing school in Gent which is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and more! There are so many new and tangible educational components with this opportunity, and we are really excited to have this as our new international experience! At our 2019 board retreat this year we talked about how we want to increase our scholarship opportunities while ensuring they have as much value as possible… we feel this is a great start!

Are you a student? You will receive clock hours for this tour. One more time: THIS TRIP COUNTS TOWARDS COLLEGE CREDIT! 

And to keep things interesting: Every year she plans to change the countries and itinerary completely. She is already looking into planning trips to South Africa, European countries (including Germany), and potentially Asia! I can’t wait for us to have these chances to really explore the world and continue to learn and better ourselves.

Now get applying!  https://www.pinkbootssociety.org/scholarship-application/
