MADISON - Applications for Wisconsin Cheese Originals' 2013 Beginning Cheesemaker Scholarship are due Friday. The $2,500 award will help one aspiring cheesemaker earn his or her Wisconsin cheesemaking license and make new artisan, farmstead or specialty cheeses. Wisconsin is the only state in the nation to require cheesemakers to be licensed, a process that can take as long as 18 months, requires attending five cheesemaking courses, and 240 hours of apprenticeship with an existing licensed Wisconsin cheesemaker.
