The NSW Wine Industry Association (NSW Wine) in conjunction with the NSW Government have opened applications for their annual scholarship program.

The scholarship includes a full WSET (Wine and Spirit Education trust) training program at either TAFE NSW Ryde or Ultimo campuses.

Open to anyone working within Greater Sydney in both on- and off-premise drinks and hospitality trades are eligible to apply for the 15 spots available.

“These scholarships are a great opportunity for those key front-of-house staff that present our wines to the public to further their wine education and careers, at the same time as expanding their knowledge of NSW wines and those dedicated wineries that craft the premium and diverse wines of NSW,” says NSW Wine President Mark Bourne.

The program will also take a focus on NSW wine, with the scholarship supplying wine and coordinating special presentations and courses along with covering the costs of participating in NSW trade tastings and events.

Applications are now open until Friday 24 February, visit to apply.
