While often viewed as separate, the arts and sciences are naturally intertwined and evident in the world around us.

In today’s society, students are pressured to pursue one distinct path throughout their education and career, often forcing them to make a choice between areas of interest. Encouraging students to creatively bridge the gap between art and science in practical and sustainable ways that serve our communities is crucial in fostering innovation and progress.

This scholarship seeks to support underrepresented students who are interested in the arts and sciences so they can achieve their dreams of higher education.

Any BIPOC high school senior or undergraduate student in the state of Texas, with financial need and volunteering experience who is interested in the arts and/or sciences may apply for this scholarship.

George Gervin AcademySan Antonio, TX
I am passionate about pursuing a degree in culinary arts because cooking has always been an integral part of my life. From a young age, I found joy and creativity in the kitchen, experimenting with flavors, techniques, and ingredients. I believe that food has the power to bring people together, evoke emotions, and create memorable experiences. My culinary goals encompass both personal and community-oriented aspirations. On a personal level, I aim to refine my skills, expand my culinary knowledge, and master various cuisines. I want to continually challenge myself to create innovative and visually stunning dishes that not only taste amazing but also tell a story. I aspire to become a recognized chef, earning accolades and opportunities to showcase my culinary expertise on a larger scale. However, my ambitions extend beyond personal success. I am committed to making a positive impact on my community through my culinary pursuits. I believe that food can be a catalyst for social change and unity. With this in mind, I plan to establish initiatives that address food insecurity, promote healthy eating habits, and provide culinary education to underserved communities. To achieve my culinary goals, I intend to enroll in a reputable culinary school that provides a comprehensive education in both the technical and creative aspects of cooking. I will immerse myself in various culinary techniques, cuisines, and ingredients, honing my skills under the guidance of experienced chefs. Furthermore, I plan to gain practical experience by working in diverse culinary environments such as restaurants, catering companies, and even food startups. This will allow me to expand my knowledge, develop my palate, and learn to adapt to different culinary styles and demands. In terms of community contributions, I have actively volunteered at local soup kitchens and food banks, helping to prepare and distribute meals to those in need. Additionally, I have conducted cooking workshops at community centers, teaching basic culinary skills to individuals who have limited access to resources. These efforts have reinforced my belief in the transformative power of food and have fueled my determination to uplift and support my community. By combining my passion for culinary arts with my commitment to community service, I strongly believe that I can make a lasting impact. I am dedicated to using my culinary skills to advocate for positive change, promote inclusivity, and create opportunities for those who face adversity. I sincerely believe that I should be awarded this scholarship because it would enable me to further my culinary education, expand my community outreach efforts, and ultimately contribute to a more vibrant and empowered society through the medium of food.
