Fortunately, most students are pros at putting off assignments until just before they’re due, so the looming deadline for a newly-announced culinary school scholarship shouldn’t scare off too many potential applicants.
On behalf of the Charleston Wine + Food Festival, the James Beard Foundation is offering a $6250 scholarship to a South Carolina resident (the arrangement is payback for the festival hosting a James Beard dinner in Charleston last year.) The program is open to high school seniors and graduates who are already enrolled in culinary school, or plan to enroll.
South Carolinian applicants who don’t receive the scholarship reserved for state residents will be considered for 15 scholarships without geographic restrictions.
The application postmark deadline is May 15. For more information, visit http://sms.scholarshipamerica.org/jamesbeard.
