The Len Evans Tutorial is open to all Australian wine industry personnel, regardless of their present position, or state of residence. For the moment, priority is given to Australian-based applicants.
The determining force with all the applicants is their potential, but experience as an Associate Judge at regional shows is beneficial. Previous Scholars have come from the fields of winemaking, liquor retailing, restaurants, marketing and journalism.
Twelve fully paid scholarships are offered each year, generously donated from industry sponsors with wine, food and accommodation valued at around $9000 included. The only cost incurred by the scholars is physically getting to the Hunter Valley.
Candidates for the Len Evans Tutorial need to send their current CV along with a detailed letter outlining their reasons for wanting to be a Len Evans Scholar. Names and phone numbers of three industry referees must also be included.
The selection process is carried out by a panel of both industry and foundation representatives.
