Scholarships

For more than 20 years, the Chicago Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier International has awarded scholarships to select women enrolled in accredited, Chicago area culinary schools.  Applications are due July 1, with awards granted later in the year.

Auctions and other fundraising activities held throughout the year support these annual, highly-coveted scholarships for women in culinary education, and have remained an important aspect of the Chicago chapter’s educational mission.

Since its inception, the Chicago Chapter has offered hundreds of educational and networking events for members and the community; provided over $300,000 in culinary scholarships to women; and donated approximately $200,000 to a variety of community organizations and projects that further the mission of Les Dames d’ Escoffier International.
