Culinary, Beverage or Hospitality Scholarship for Women in BC

Women who wish to begin training in culinary, beverage or hospitality fields, or women who are already skilled in these fields and seek to refine or further their expertise may apply for a scholarship available through the BC Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier.

Les Dames d’Escoffier is a culinary organization composed of women who have both achieved success in their professions, and who contribute significantly to their communities. Their purpose is to promote the understanding, appreciation and knowledge of food, wine, hospitality, nutrition and food technology as well as education and advancement in these fields.

The Scholarship Committee of the BC Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier, the administrative body that annually grants scholarships to women, award the scholarships based on merit, ability, commitment and passion, and may range in value between $1,000 and $3,000 depending on funds available, program requirements and approved applicants.  

Applications will open again in 2023

Please Note:

  • Applicants must be B.C. residents.
  • Most scholarships awarded rarely constitute complete tuition, therefore you must be able to provide the remaining funds through other sources, and not all applicants are awarded funds.
  • As the number of scholarships awarded is limited to a maximum of thirty each year, returning applications that were not awarded a scholarship previously are encouraged to re-apply.
  • Funding must be used in the calendar year the scholarship is awarded.
  • A $30 non refundable processing fee is required to administer your application whether you are awarded a scholarship or not
