The Pink Boots Society was created to assist, inspire and encourage women beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education. Our biannual conferences embody this mission by instilling attendees with hard takeaways and valuable knowledge that can be applied from the brewhouse–to the taproom–to the marketplace, along with time for ample networking, fun, and camaraderie with fellow women working through all facets of the global beer industry!

Kicking off with an inspiring and substantive industry keynote from the Brewers Association’s Julia Herz, additional panels and presentations at our 2019 conference will touch on: Beer Quality, Sensory, Raw Ingredients, Hot Side/Cold Side Processes, Diversity in the Beer Industry, Personal Goal Setting/Leadership, Advanced Social Media, Tasting Room Experience, Strengthening PBS Chapters, HR, and more! Full schedule coming soon.This scholarship is designed for any woman beer professional wishing to further her career through education. Please see below for Required Applicant Qualifications.  

This course, as with all USA courses, will be offered in English only.


Required Applicant Qualifications: Any woman, anywhere in the world, who earns at least 25% of her income from the brewing industry, is qualified for Pink Boots Society membership and to apply for any scholarship.  Click here to join or to connect with us.


Due to the nature of the course, the selection committee requires that the applicant be 21 years or older.

Terms & Conditions: All PBS scholarships have a “Pay It Forward” (PIF) requirement, where our scholarship recipients are required to pass on the specific knowledge they gained in their scholarship course to other PBS members and to the industry in general within 6 months of completing the course. This is accomplished through many means like publishing an article, publishing a blog on a reputable website, or giving a presentation at a local, regional or national professional seminar or conference.  Evidence of PIF must be sent to PBS for validation and if applicable, for posting on the PBS website. Many recipients choose to PIF at their local chapter meetings, but you can also present at our annual CBC and GABF meetings.

This course does not require a deposit.

Please Note: If the recipient fails to successfully complete the course, the deposit and stipend (if applicable) will be forfeited and not reimbursed. Once the PIF is verified, the recipient will receive a pair of pink steel-toed boots.

Please note that Scholarship Recipients are announced approximately six weeks after the scholarship application window closes. In this case, the recipient will be announced approximately December 15.
