Scholarships

Les Dames d’Escoffier International is an international organization of women leaders whose mission is to support their communities in achieving excellence in the food, beverage and hospitality professions. Our Charleston chapter is comprised of nearly 70 professionals who are passionate about promoting knowledge, appreciation and the accessibility of food, nutrition and the arts of the table through active mentoring and the funding of scholarships.

In 2011, we launched Les Dames d’Escoffier Charleston Scholarships for Education, awarded to qualified female applicants who are furthering their careers through undergraduate/graduate course work, continuing education or certification programs in culinary, beverage or hospitality arts. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, July 1, 2017.

Each scholarship award up to a maximum of $3,000 will be paid directly to the appropriate institution. Payment will be awarded by August 1 for the 2016-2017 enrollment period.
