Jacques Pepin Foundation New Member Scholarship
Catalyst Kitchens is excited to offer this opportunity to organizations joining our member network for the first time. This scholarship is offered thanks to the generous support of our partner, the Jacques Pepin Foundation, who supports free culinary and life skills training, through community based organizations, that helps individuals detached from the workforce gain confidence, skills, and employment in food service.
We are stronger together, and know that new programs often need additional support at this crucial time to grow and learn from the collective knowledge our network offers. Past members of the network are also encouraged to apply, as we would love to welcome you back. Existing members, see a separate scholarship fund here.
This scholarship fund will be $5,000 in total, and be disbursed based on the qualifications of organizations laid out below to determine, fit, need, and opportunity for growth. In previous years, we have handed out a small number of full scholarships (i.e. covering annual dues entirely), but this year will will consider the overall number of applicants, their economic need, and may divide up this fund into a mix of full and partial scholarships.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our network!
