The George & Susan Carter Scholarship was established in 2017 as an endowed fund in honor of WSU researcher and winemaker George Carter and his wife, Susan. George Carter worked side by side with Dr. Walter Clore and the two were close friends. As part of his day-to-day activities, Carter developed a system for classifying American, European and hybrid grape varietals. In recognition of his wine making accomplishments, Carter was elevated to a Supreme Knight in the International Brotherhood of the Knights of the Vine. This scholarship was established to assist students of limited means to attain associates, bachelors and graduate level degrees in viticulture and enology and will offer one (1) $1,000 auto-renewing scholarship per year.
