The Oskar Blues Brewery has established an endowed fellowship award to benefit graduate students in the Brewing Sciences and Operations certificate program at Auburn University.

The Colorado-based brewery, founded by Auburn alumnus Dale Katechis, partnered with the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Hospitality Management in the College of Human Sciences, as well as the colleges of veterinary medicine, business and agriculture, to offer the graduate-level program, which started in fall 2014 with 20 students.

The newly created endowment will provide financial assistance to a student who is enrolled in the Auburn University Graduate School and has been accepted into the brewing science program. Students enrolled in the program have already earned a bachelor's degree and are seeking entry into the malting, brewing and/or distilling industries. The Auburn program is the first of its kind in the Southeast. For more information, visit this website.
