The Goya Foods Culinary Arts Scholarship is available on a competitive basis to students planning to enroll as freshman during the 2022-2023 academic year in a culinary arts or food sciences area of study. Four awards of $5,000 each will be granted every year and are renewable for up to three years, or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. The maximum scholarship award of $20,000 per student will be provided if the recipient remains eligible to receive funding.
