US Foods Scholars Program

The US Foods Scholars Program awards scholarships totaling $20,000 to culinary and hospitality students who have demonstrated outstanding potential and achievement, helping them take the next step in their education and culinary journeys. 

The program accepts applicants from eligible students attending one of six US Foods Scholars partner schools, including the Art Institute of Atlanta, Austin Community College, Bethune Cookman University, Lawson State Community College, Linn-Benton Community College, and Wake Technical Community College. Applicants must be full-time undergraduate students or students planning to enroll at one of the partner schools for the entire upcoming academic year. They must be pursuing either a two-year associate degree in the culinary arts or a related discipline (including, but not limited to, culinary science, baking and pastry arts, and food business management) or a four-year bachelor’s degree in hospitality management. 

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older at the time of the application deadline; be U.S. residents authorized to work in the 50 states and the District of Columbia; and have a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent). Awards provided to first-year associate degree students and first through third-year bachelor’s degree students are renewable for a second year, provided eligibility is maintained.
