RFEC Apprentice Scholarships

RFEC Apprentice Scholarships - 2016

In support of its original founding intent the Resort Food Executive Committee has established a Scholarship Fund for culinary and pastry apprentices of member properties.

Our goal is to challenge our best young culinarians to grow and showcase what they have learned.

This annual competition will award two apprentices as finalists; each finalist will receive an invitation to stage in the kitchens of the host resort property for that year during the RFEC annual conference.

Transportation, room and board will be funded by the RFEC and the host property making this into an amazing opportunity for every aspiring culinary apprentice.
