Hello and welcome! The purpose for the Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship Fund is to sponsor selected recipients with funding to attend the Wine Bloggers Conference this July in Santa Rosa.
Through a committee selection process, applicants are asked to describe their blog, their financial needs pertaining to the Wine Bloggers Conference, and why they are deserving on sponsorship.
The selection committee consists of the following individuals:
Thea Dwelle @winebratsf – wine blogger and social media champion
Megan Riley Kenney @sonadora – wine blogger
Liza Swift @brixchick_liza – wine blogger
Joel Vincent @joelvincent – wine industry professional and Wine Blogger Conference Organizer
Ward Kadel @drxeno – wine blogger West Coast Ambassador, WineLog.net
All of the committee members have paid for thier own fees associated with the Wine Bloggers Confernece and are participating in this panel in order to encourage the sense of community among wine bloggers, and allow more attendees to participate in this years confernece who might otherwise not be able to.
Funds are generated by donations from participating wineries, as well as individuals. If you wish to donate to this fund, please contact us! We accept donations from all wine industry companies, as well as individuals. Skip that morning latte and donate to a needy blogger! No amount is too small, and every effort is appreciated. Individual donors will receive a commemorative Wine Bloggers Conference Charm for their efforts! These custom wine charms are handmade with wine love by Thea.
Funds are awarded based on the committee selection process, and are pooled. No one donation will be given to a specific individual.
