worthy goal Scholarship
IFSEA Worthy Goal Scholarships are typically awarded in the amounts between $500 to $2500 on an annual basis to students enrolled in an accredited food service/hospitality, or other related degree, at an institution of higher education. The scholarship may be used for the purpose of paying tuition and other mandatory fees related to purusing an accredited degree in Food Service or Hospitality Management. This scholarship is open to students enrolled or accepted as full-time students at a two or four-year college/university. It is awarded every Spring for the following Fall semester.

Annually, IFSEA accepts applications up until March 31st.. Selections and presentations are then made at our international conference, and the scholarship awards are forwarded to the appropriate educational institutions earmarked for the specific student. An applicant need not be a member of IFSEA to be considered for a grant.
IFSEA and the Worthy Goal Scholarship Fund have been dedicated to the objective of aiding students and young professionals since the fund was established in 1968. It is governed fairly by six trustees who work as volunteers. This lowers administrative costs, maximizing the funding for scholarships.
Applications are due March 31, 2024. Instructions are listed on the application.
