The Vilcek Foundation shall award a $25,000 prize to a young, foreign-born professional
in the culinary arts who has made notable contributions to the field at an early stage in his/her
career. In addition, four finalists will each be awarded $5,000. Chefs, artisans, and innovators are eligible to apply.
Applicants must be foreign-born and be 38 years old or younger. Only naturalized U.S. citizens or
green card holders are eligible to apply.
The Vilcek Foundation honors the contributions of foreign-born scientists and artists living and
working in the United States. The Foundation’s Creative Promise awards program, inaugurated
in 2009, expands on that mission by focusing attention on the extraordinary drive, talent, and
ingenuity new generations of immigrants bring to our culture, arts, and sciences.
Applications and more information are available from the Vilcek Foundation website, www.vilcek.org.
