Culinary, Baking and Hospitality School Grants and Scholarships

If you are thinking of going to culinary school or the restaurant and hospitality field, check out these various organizations that are offering grants and scholarships. Some culinary schools are expensive and you may need help with your tuition.

Check with the schools you are interested in attending to see what they have to offer. Most likely a representative from the school will contact you after you fill out the request more information forms and give you a good idea of what’s available, but be sure to also check with the schools Financial Aid office. They are there to help.

Below you will find a large grouping of organizations who award grants and scholarships to students interested in getting into the culinary and food service industries. This list is not comprehensive and I will be adding more as I find them. If you offer a culinary grant or scholarship, please contact us with your information.
