The Culinary Trust Announces the 2012-2013 Scholarship, Grant & Internship Program
The Culinary Trust is offering funding for culinary school, independent study and internships. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity.
- (1888PressRelease) February 07, 2012 - New York, NY - The Culinary Trust will accept applications for formal culinary education scholarships, independent study grants and professional internships now through March 15, 2012. The trust is offering an assortment of opportunities from culinary schools, businesses and non-profit organizations, including two grants named in honor of founding trustee Julia Child.
In addition to scholarships to some of the world's best culinary schools, this year we are offering several short-term internships designed to enhance the skills of seasoned professionals. These unique opportunities include internships at the Mozzarella Company in Dallas, The John Besh Foundation in New Orleans, New York City's Wellness in the Schools, Sauska Vineyards in Hungary and many others.
As stated in the mission, The Culinary Trust gives culinary professionals the tools and opportunities to understand and act on critical issues in the world of food. Since 1992 the scholarship program has had a huge impact on its recipients. Ken Albala, author of the award winning Beans: A History, writes: "The Culinary trust had an inestimable impact on my scholarly development as a food historian…. I cannot even begin to express my gratitude."
In discussing a dramatic career change, Peggy Ann Diaz states how the Trust helped her attend the Management Program at the Institute of Culinary Education. "The experience helped me conceptualize and develop my career. When ICE posted a position to teach at a High School, I applied. At Masuk High School in Monroe, CT, I've created a restaurant, organic garden, and greenhouse. We serve the Masuk community at Semyon's Place, our café….If not for the Trust, I would never have had the confidence or education to embark on such a global career change."
Scholarship Chair, Jessica Bride, says "The Culinary Trust scholarship program is a one-stop-shop for people seeking financial aid for culinary school or professional development programs. It is rare to have so many incredible opportunities in one place." Scholarship selection is based on merit, foodservice work experience, culinary goals, skills and references.
The scholarships are valid from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013 (unless otherwise noted in the 2012-2013 Scholarship Program Listing) and applications must be postmarked by March 15, 2012.
