Women In Culinary Apprenticeship Scholarship
Research shows that businesses with women in leadership roles and a diverse workforce perform better economically with higher productivity and increased attention to detail. Though there has been progress towards increasing gender diversity in many industries, the culinary arts industry still lags. In 2021, women made up only 25% of cooks and chefs in the United States.
Soil2Service and Detroit Institute of Gastronomy (DIG) believe that through apprentice education, students are provided a chance to learn the skills needed to lead the culinary industry and through this tuition scholarship, we hope to help reduce the gender gap in professional kitchens.
The Women In Culinary Apprenticeship (WIA) Scholarship is open to all fully enrolled female apprentice students. Applications are accepted at any time and reviewed by the Scholarship Committee quarterly. Full (one year tuition) and Partial Scholarship are available.
