Dear friends of Dave Bilenduke, here is some information from Dave's niece on how you can contribute to the Dave Bilenduke Memorial Bursary.
Beer was one of Dave's gre
at loves. In the last part of his life, he had the bravery to leave behind an established career as a geologist and embark on his studies to become a brewmaster. To celebrate him, we have set up the Dave Bilenduke Memorial Bursary at his Alma mater, Olds College.
We are trying to raise a total of at least $20,000 by June 30, 2023. This will ensure the fund will last in perpetuity and can start being awarded in 2025.
This bursary will be given to a mature student (as Dave was) who shows creativity and innovation in the field of brewing. Tyler Rose of Common Crown, Dave's friend and colleague, will evaluate the applications each fall.
To pitch in and help us establish this bursary in celebration of Dave, you can contribute here: https://www.oldscollege.ca/alumni-donors/giving-to-olds-college/donate-online/index.html
