James Beard is fondly remembered by friends and colleagues as a man who offered unstinting help and encouragement to people embarking on a culinary career. Upholding Beard’s legacy of culinary education and support through our scholarship program is an essential component of the James Beard Foundation’s mission. The JBF National Scholars, The Friends of James Beard Foundation Scholarships and the James Beard Foundation School Scholarships have been established to assist aspiring food study professionals who plan to further their education at a licensed or accredited school. Professional grants are also available for independent work, study, and travel.
