Cheesemaker Scholarship Offered by Cheese Originals Group
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/22/2014
Wisconsin Cheese Originals has announced that applications are now available for its 2014 Beginning Cheesemaker Scholarship program. Coordinators say the $2,500 award will help one aspiring cheesemaker earn his or her Wisconsin cheesemaking license and make new artisan, farmstead or specialty cheeses.
Wisconsin is the only state in the nation to require cheesemakers to be licensed, a lengthy process that can take as long as 18 months, requires the attendance at five cheesemaking courses, and 240 hours of apprenticeship with an existing licensed Wisconsin cheesemaker.
Applications for the 2014 Wisconsin Cheese Originals Beginning Cheesemaker Scholarship are available for download at www.WisconsinCheeseOriginals.com.
Applications are due March 20. The recipient will be chosen by a review committee and notified by April 7.
