Culinary Scholarships for Women

A gourmet palate has become a status symbol, so much so that there’s already a backlash against the self-named “foodie”, who knows her Kobe beef from her chanterelles. Regardless of the backlash, people will always want to eat delicious food, and well-trained chefs who can make miraculous dishes will always be in demand.

While culinary school doesn’t take as many years to complete as some other professional training programs, it Is no less rigorous, and no less expensive. Finding financial aid to help pay for culinary school can also be a challenge, as not all culinary schools accept or offer traditional methods of financial aid. Fortunately, there are options if you’d like to be the next Anthony Bourdain or Nigella Lawson.

While American women have typically been the home cook, professional chefs have been almost overwhelmingly male. Only in the last few decades have women really begun to enter the field in comparable numbers to men. Some of the thanks for this goes to the indomitable Julia Child, who broke the glass ceiling for many women chefs by mastering French cooking when barely any American chefs, male or female, could do so.
