Siebel Institute Scholarships

Scholarship for Campus courses

Pride in Brewing Scholarship


Craft beer has a diversity problem. Members of the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities are underrepresented across the industry—from customers to employees and ownership. In 2018, Beer Dabbler decided to take positive action by establishing the Pride in Brewing Scholarship for a brewing program with the mission to help members of the LGBTQ+ community break into the brewing industry. Starting in 2022, we are excited to be awarding a full-ride scholarship plus $1,000 travel stipend for the Siebel Institute WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology on-campus course in Chicago, Illinois.


This scholarship applies to the following courses:

WBA Concise Course In Brewing Technology

Rules and regulations

Our current scholarship process is for students to attend the in-person course at the Siebel Institute in Chicago, Illinois from November 7–18, 2022. In addition to covering the cost of tuition, this scholarship will cover and provide a $1,000 stipend to offset travel costs incurred while attending the program.

I’m interested! What’s Next?

All applicants must be at least 21 years of age and have prior knowledge of the brewing process basics through either home brewing or employment (minimum 1 year).

The application for the Fall 2022 scholarship can be found here and will be open July 11–August 15, 2022. All application decisions will be communicated shortly after August 15, 2022.
