2017 Summit Scholarships

We are pleased to offer Member-only Scholarships each year so chefs and food professionals can attend our Annual Chef Summit. Thank you to all who generously supported Chefs Collaborative and our Good Food Fund this past year so that we can offer this exciting Member-only opportunity!


Exciting news! We are pleased to announce that we will now be offering 25 scholarships to the 2017 Chef Summit. Thank you to The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts for granting 5 future scholars the opportunity to connect, learn and grow at this year’s Summit!


Chefs Collaborative scholarships are life- and career-changing opportunities. Recipients receive a Chef Summit General Admission ticket ($750 value) and a $250 travel and lodging stipend (reimbursed upon submission of a post-event essay).

The scholarship application period for the 2017 Chefs Collaborative Summit is now closed. Recipients will be announced on July 31st!
