    The Pink Boots Society is looking for a member to fill a vacated seat on the Scholarship Selection Committee (SSC).

    The SSC is made up of five women who come from various backgrounds within the beer industry. It is a two-year commitment, and we are looking for self-starters who can hit deadlines without someone nagging them.

    We currently offer six scholarships annually. You would have two weeks to get your preliminary notes in on the scholarship applications you read along with your top three choices. Then as a team you and the other four committee members have two more weeks to pick your number one choice and give that name to Pink Boots Society founder Teri Fahrendorf and Kris McDowell, Scholarship Administrator.

    Once your two-year commitment is up, then you have to wait another two years to apply for a scholarship. We require this to make sure nobody can say that any favoritism was shown for a previous SSC member.

    During your two-year commitment, nobody will know you are on the committee. We keep it secret so that no applicants know who looked at and decided on their application. It keeps things cleaner. Once you "retire", then we can happily thank you publicly, and you are free to put your service on your resume at that time.
