Goya Foods, America’s largest Hispanic-owned food company, offers a total of $80,000 Culinary Arts and Food Science Scholarships to four students nationwide entering their freshman year of college with an undergraduate degree in culinary arts and/or food science.
Goya’s Culinary Arts Scholarship is available on a competitive basis to students entering an accredited two-year or four-year institution. Scholarships are in the amount of $5,000 awarded per academic year starting in fall 2021 and are renewable for up to three additional years, provided the student remains eligible to receive funding, totaling $20,000.
“Education is at the base of growth, and we believe every student should have the opportunity and access to higher education. Through our Goya Gives program and The Goya Scholarship Fund, we have supported school initiatives and universities that help strengthen the development and growth of our youth and educational systems,” said Bob Unanue, president of Goya Foods.
Applicants of the Goya Culinary Arts Scholarship will be selected based on the standard requirements established by Goya and administered by Scholarship America, including academic achievement, leadership and financial need, as well as an evaluation of an essay explaining how Goya has enriched their family traditions.
