BGWA Well-being Fund: The BGWA Well-being Fund will be used to benefit the Barossa wine and grape growing community by increasing capability via knowledge and understanding about various issues relating to mental health. The outcomes will be designed to better equip members of the Barossa wine and grape growing community to engage in conversations and to provide active support for people, whose colleagues, friends or family members are facing mental health issues. It is intended that the grants will fund regular, formal mental health First Aid training. The training will cover areas such as what is mental illness, how to talk about mental health, the importance of self-care and how to support someone with mental health challenges.
Peter Lehmann Arts & Education Trust: The Peter Lehmann Arts and Education Trust (PLAET) was launched in 2014 to nurture and sustain the artistic and cultural fabric of the Barossa by providing access and education to a wide range of arts and cultural activities.
The trust came about to memorialise Peter Lehmann, a true son of the Barossa and supporter of all aspects of Barossa culture and heritage.
Elderton Wine Making Excellence Scholarships: The one-year scholarship provides $3000 towards a student’s Bachelor of Oenology (Winemaking) or Bachelor of Viticulture at an Australian University. The successful applicant will receive mentoring from the team at Elderton. We encourage scholarship recipients to undertake a vintage placement at Elderton. During their placement, the Elderton team will mentor the student, giving them the building blocks for a winemaking career.
Thomas Scholarships: Foundation Barossa’s scholarships support students that might not otherwise go on to TAFE and university.
The three-year scholarships can pay for tuition, accommodation or equipment.
Through these scholarships, Foundation Barossa is helping young people to contribute to the future of the community.
Barossa Bands Scholarships: The Barossa Bands Scholarship was created in 2015 following the disbanding of the Barossa Junior Brass Band. The aim of the Scholarship is to enable and promote the tuition of young, talented musicians who will be mentored by one of the local community bands.
