New Scholarship Supports V&E at WSU

Wine-By-Cougars has announced the development of the WBC Viticulture and Enology Scholarship fund.

“WSU’s viticulture and enology program is nationally recognized and provides the booming Washington wine industry with research innovations and talented graduates to recruit,” a Wine-By-Cougars representative said.

Wine-By-Cougars is a wine club that features “premium, hand-crafted wines produced by wineries with a Cougar connection,” according to club founder and alumna Cassie Rothstrom.

For more information on how to help grow the scholarship fund, contact the WSU Foundation at 800-448-2978.
