Applications for the 2007 Geoffrey Roberts Award should be in by this weekend. The Trustees of this charitable foundation are looking for suitable recipients of a £3,000/$6,000 travel bursary – someone who can convince them they will spend the money on some really worthwhile travel project that will make a difference to the world of food and/or drink. Applicants, and winners, have so far come from a wide range of countries, ages and backgrounds.
You can find out more about this award, set up in 1994 in memory of a pioneer importer of New World wines into the UK, at www.geoffreyrobertsaward.com
For more details of how to apply for the 2007 award (one email will do it) and who the 2006 winners were, see here.
