We are pleased to offer Member-only Scholarships each year so chefs and food professionals can attend our Annual Chef 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).

Thanks to the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts, Atlanta Local chefs, Local groups across the country and the Chefs Collaborative Good Food Fund for making 25 Scholarships possible for 2017!
