pursuit of culinary arts and enology/viticulture in full or part-time
accredited continuing education programs. The scholarships typically
range from $1,000 to $5,000, and the funds do not need to be repaid. All
schools must be accredited and offer continuous relevant hands-on,
in-person experience. Since the money for the scholarships is raised by
the Monterey Bay Chapter, scholarships are only awarded to people who
are connected to Monterey area by school, work, or recent involvement in
food or wine in the area. The scholarship money may be used for study
within or outside of Monterey County.
The scholarship award is not transferable without the
written permission of the Scholarship Committee, and permission may be
denied at the discretion of the Committee.

home and cell phone numbers and email addresses.
Successful applicants are also required to supply the name,
