Scholarship Season for Kendall College Trust Is Underway

Scholarship season for Kendall College Trust (KCT) is underway, and deserving students will be awarded opportunities to achieve their dream of attending culinary school.

KCT grants scholarships to students in financial need attending Chicago's  Kendall College culinary school, and a handful of recipients have gone on to excel in the field. Chicago Michelin Restaurants ranks Kendall College as the number-one Chicago program in preparing students for culinary careers.

KCT kick-starts the next generation of beverage professionals through generous scholarships, with many entering the doors of Kendall College with help from the organization and coming out successful on the other side.

The industry is tough to break into, and with help from KCT, several students have fulfilled their lifelong ambitions. Some of those names Alicia Obertin – Wine Manager of Intercontinental Hotels Group Wine Manager, and Bruno Mondello – an employee of the liqueur department at Mariano’s Market. An education from Kendall College provides opportunities in other hospitality settings – not just a kitchen.

Scholarships for next year are now open. For more information go to
