Chef Danhi has been an active participant with the Research Chefs Association since joining the R&D community in 2001, so he knows first hand how vital and inspiring RCA activities are to students and professionals alike. Sponsoring this scholarship is one way he and Flavor360 are giving back by inviting students currently enrolled in a Culinology, Food Science, or Culinary degree-granting program to tell their stories and be eligible for awards and cash prizes.
Every aspiring Culinologist has a story — each unique and provocative — and we want to tell these stories and REWARD the culinary students who are living them! At this time, participants are already currently utilizing industry-leading Flavor360 software as their data collection tool to capture their food stories and create multimedia presentations to share. Students are then eligible to earn these exciting awards:
- First 100 submissions receive 1-year RCA Student membership
- Top 10 submissions also receive free registration to the virtual RCA+ conference March 23-26, 2021
- Best Culinologist Stories win additional Cash Scholarships
- 1st Prize = $1000
- 2nd Prize = $750
- 3rd Prize = $500
The top 10 participants will also share their multimedia stories on a live global Zoom presentation during the RCA+ Conference. Virtual attendees from around the world will cast a People’s Choice vote to select the top three students to be awarded additional cash scholarships to assist them on their way to become top food industry leaders.
Watch and choose which top three multimedia student submissions will receive $500, $750, and $1000! Hear from the students as they describe who inspired them, how they intend to make a difference, and what their dream job will be.
