Growing up in the family restaurant business is a unique experience that can teach valuable skills, such as time management and flexibility.
Unfortunately, this experience can also come with drawbacks, such as the expectation to stay close to home and help with the business and/or the financial burden that higher education can place on a family in the restaurant industry, especially with the increased strain due to the pandemic.
This scholarship aims to support students who were raised in the family restaurant business so they can afford to pursue all of their goals for the future.
Any first-generation, BIPOC high school senior or bachelor’s degree student who grew up in the family restaurant business may apply for this scholarship.
