Glancy Wine Education Fund
Application status: Closed

San Francisco Wine School believes that every motivated and engaged student should have access to high quality, professional education in their trade.

The Glancy Wine Education Fund has been established to assist students enrolled in an eligible course of study provided at San Francisco Wine School, (including certifications conferred by San Francisco Wine School, Society of Wine Educators, Wine Scholar Guild, or WSET by Grape Experience.) Eligible courses of study are listed on the application or can be verified by the providing institution.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Glancy Wine Education Fund must:

  • Plan to enroll in an eligible course of study provided at San Francisco Wine School (including certifications conferred by San Francisco Wine School, Society of Wine Educators, Wine Scholar Guild, or WSET by Grape Experience) between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.
  • Be 21 years or older on the day the coursework begins.

*You will be asked to provide information on the Scholarship America Student Hub for current postsecondary students that may not be applicable to your current situation and the Glancy Wine Education Fund.  Answer these questions as they pertain to your final year in high school or postsecondary education. Much of the information in this section is not considered when evaluating your application for a Glancy Wine Education award.


The authorized amount available for distribution will be based upon the amount available in the Fund. Awards of up to $5,000 may be granted, based upon financial need (applicant’s AGI) and total cost of coursework.

Awards are not renewable, however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards must be used in calendar year 2020.


All applicants will be notified in late December.
