Goya Foods is offering a total of $80,000 for Culinary Arts and Food Science Scholarships, granted annually, to four students entering their freshman year of college working toward a degree in culinary arts and/or food science.

The nationwide 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. Applications are due no later than February 26, 2021. 

"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," says Bob Unanue, President of Goya Foods. Goya Foods is America's largest Hispanic-owned food company.

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.
