The Craft Maltsters Guild is committed to providing equitable access to education and
opportunities in the craft malt industry to anyone interested. In 2024, the Guild will offer
scholarships for both in-person and virtual attendance to the Craft Malt Conference
(MaltCon2024) scheduled for February 23-24, 2024, at UC Davis, California.
Two in-person scholarships will be available and will include free registration to the
conference in California ($775 value, this includes some meals), plus a $1000 stipend to assist with travel expenses. Along with the in-person opportunities, there are three
virtual scholarships to be had. All scholarship recipients will also receive a
complimentary one-year Individual Membership ($150 value) with the Guild. With this
membership, recipients will be able to continue their craft malt education throughout the
year by accessing our extensive video and webinar archive, as well as attending
upcoming educational webinars and joining in discussions on Guild member forums
about craft malt-related topics.
Applicants are encouraged to learn more about this year’s event on the conference
