Five days left for culinarians to apply for over half a million dollars in financial aid through the James Beard Foundation.

Applications need be postmarked by Thursday, May 15.

There are different award categories (for those beginning professional training) and professional grants (for those already working as chefs/sommeliers).

See these categories on the links below:

Friends of James Beard Scholarships
JBF School Awards list
Professional Grants (for those now working as Chefs and Sommeliers)
This includes an AnQi scholarship to the Art Institute of OC, established last year. If you know anyone looking for financial assistance for culinary school or are interested yourself in ongoing short-term education opportunities through the grants, please spread the word…pronto!
