The MNCBG invites the people and businesses of Minnesota to join us in supporting a diverse and inclusive craft beer industry in Minnesota. The MNCBG and our partners are establishing “Diversity In Brewing” scholarships at the Dakota County Technical College for their Brewing and Beer Steward Technology Certificate Program.

The goal of these scholarships is twofold:

  • To actively contribute to a brewing industry that reflects the diversity of our great state, and
  • To support the educational goals of people who are currently under-represented in our industry by eliminating financial barriers.

Underrepresented students including those identifying as an ethnic and/or racial minority, veterans, women, and members of the LBGTQ+ community with financial need will be given special consideration.

Applications for the Fall 2021 semester have closed.

Please check this page in the fall for details on Spring 2022 applications.
