Empowering Students From Minority Ethnic Groups to Achieve Their Dreams
The WebstaurantStore Diversity Scholarship is a $5,000 GRANT created to encourage diversity in the field of hospitality and reward talented students from minority ethnic groups who possess a passion for the culinary arts. With this scholarship, our goal is to open doors and provide support to traditionally underrepresented communities in the foodservice industry. By encouraging the growth and development of students from diverse minority racial groups, we hope to empower them to achieve excellence in their chosen career.
