Food is an integral part of culture and identity for many across the country.
For budding culinary professionals, food prep is an artform they use to express themselves while nourishing others.
To encourage aspiring chefs and other food professionals to continue expressing themselves through their culinary work while also providing for those in their community, the “Cooking with Gas” Culinary Scholarship will support the culinary career of one student who is passionate about food prep and cooking and is looking to take their career to the next level.
Those who are pursuing a culinary career or are passionate about cooking are eligible for this scholarship. Though not required, it’s a plus if students have in-depth experience in the culinary field listed on their student profiles.
The application deadline is Jun 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jun 30, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 30, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
