Supporting the Glancy Wine Education Fund for Wine & Hospitality Professionals

At San Francisco Wine School, we believe that every motivated and engaged student should have access to high quality, professional education in their trade. Since our inception, we have been providing tuition assistance programs to worthy students and are thrilled to offer financial support for the next generation of industry leaders. 

The 501c3 qualified Glancy Wine Education Fund was established in 2017 and provides scholarships of up to $5,000 each to students wanting to start or advance a career in the wine or hospitality industry using certifications offered by San Francisco Wine School. Awards are based upon financial need and cost of coursework and in consideration of academic performance and work experience as well as educational and career goals.  The fund receives more than $100,000 in requests for scholarships each year.  97% of our applicants fall below living wage. 


SPECIAL NOTE:  You may bid by proxy at the live auction on Nov 2nd.  When the online auction closes, if you are not present at the live event, we will continue to bid on your behalf up to the amount you designate as your highest bid.
