According to Decanter.com, legendary RUSH frontman Geddy Lee has had a wine scholarship created in his name.

The honour has been conferred by his fellow directors at the charitable foundation Grapes For Humanity.

The board voted unanimously to create a scholarship in his name, in perpetuity, for a student of winemaking at Niagara College in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.

To establish the scholarship Grapes for Humanity Canada has committed $26,500, which will be matched by the Ontario provincial government.

The income will be used to provide an annual scholarship for a student in the second year of Niagara College’s Wine and Viticulture Technician programme who intends to pursue a career path in winemaking after graduation.

"Niagara College is thrilled that Grapes for Humanity Canada is making this significant investment to support student learning and success, and the wine industry," Niagara College Foundation CEO Sean Kennedy said.
