2 scholarships, worth $2,500 each, available to BIPOC culinary and hospitality students thanks to gift from Dough Wines
California and Oregon-based Dough Wines is funding two scholarships to improve access to education for students who identify as Black, Indigenous or People of Colour (BIPOC). This is part of their effort to create a more equitable and sustainable food culture.
“Our mission is to inspire you to rise to the occasion with us, in support of restaurant recovery, equality in the kitchen and food sustainability,” said Clayton Seeto, Distinguished Vineyards & Wine Partners. “We’re proud to partner with George Brown College in Toronto to support students identifying as Black, Indigenous and other people of colour, to grow their careers and lead into the future.”
Two awards, worth $2,500 each, are available to full-time students studying at the Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts (CHCA) who meet the following criteria:
- Registered for full-time study in one of the following programs:
- Preference will be given to students from equity deserving groups who self-identify as Black, Indigenous and/or People of Colour.
- Students must demonstrate financial need
- Students must be of legal drinking age in the province of Ontario (19) at the time of application
“We’re grateful for Dough Wine’s generous gift and we’re proud to partner with an organization that actively promotes and demonstrates equitable, ethical and sustainable industry practices,” said Tony Garcia, Director, Academic Operations, CHCA Services & Partner Engagement. “Gifts such as these are important to our students and help us reduce barriers to education.”
