Students across the country are facing unprecedented challenges due to the pandemic. To help, the NRAEF will open applications to offer financial aid to anyone pursing a secondary degree in the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality field. This year, the NRAEF will award nearly $1 million in scholarships and grants.
NRAEF scholarships range from $2,500 to $10,000 and can be used towards tuition and fees, books, room and board and other school-related expenses. The scholarships have no age restrictions. Whether applicants are recent high-school graduates or adults looking to make a career change, individuals at various education levels are encouraged to apply.
The deadline to apply is March 15, 2021 and applications can be completed through the Foundation's online portal – ChooseRestaurants.org/Scholarships.
