NORMS 2017 Scholarship Application Call
Now Accepting NORMS Restaurant Scholarship Applications!
NORMS is proud to support the culinary arts and hospitality management and education—that’s why we’re partnering again with the California Restaurant Association Foundation (CRAF) to award the NORMS Restaurants Scholarships.
We are now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year. Since its inception, NORMS has awarded $30,000 in scholarships to students in the southern California region. The scholarship is awarded to high school seniors and undergraduates interested in pursuing careers in hospitality management. The scholarships are competitive, and are awarded based on the evaluation of application, essay, previous experience and an interview. Students must reside in Orange, Riverside or Los Angeles counties to apply.
Top applicants will be interviewed by the CRAF scholarship panel, which includes educators and industry leaders. Scholarships will be awarded in two payments following proof of enrollment in two semesters.
If you’re passionate about food and hospitality, look no further! We’re looking forward to meeting our 2017 scholarship recipients.
