Liquorland Wine Show Launches Second Scholarship

Liquorland International Wine Show Launches Second Industry Scholarship Programme

After contributing $80,000 to wine industry research projects over the last five years, the Liquorland International Wine Competition is set to run the Scholarship Programme again.

Donating the money raised from auctioning unused bottles of wine remaining after the judging of the Competition, funds have so far been supplied to the Auckland Wine Science Programme and to the Marlborough Wine Research Centre. Liquorland Merchandise Manager Andrew Bartley explains, “This is a very simple and effective way to contribute to the development of the New Zealand wine industry.” He continues, “We also feel we have a responsibility to the industry with regards to the surplus wine from competition entries – this activity means everybody benefits.”

Liquorland will again pledge $80,000 over the next five years of the competition to various research projects. These can be wide-ranging from small grants for students or funding visiting scientists to specific research projects. The only criteria are that the activity proposed must benefit the New Zealand wine industry.

To determine how the funds are awarded Liquorland is now inviting interested parties to submit a paper of no more than 1,000 words outlining how they would use any allocated monies. The submission must include the following:
• Name of the organisation
• Amount of funding requested
• The specific activity the funding is required for
• How this activity will benefit the New Zealand wine industry
• Proposed timing of this activity
• Name of individuals responsible for the activity and for how any awarded funding would be spent

Submissions must be received by Monday 31st May 2010 to Director of the Liquorland International Wine Competition, Belinda Jackson at belinda@liquorland.co.nz . The committee to decide which submissions will benefit from the funding will comprise Belinda Jackson, Andrew Bartley (Liquorland Ltd) Stuart Smith, Chairman of New Zealand Winegrowers and Dominic Pecchenino, Chair of Research, New Zealand Winegrowers.
