Three Cheers for Three Students
Abbe Lewis / December 21st, 2012
Scholarships will be awarded to three lucky students enrolling in the inaugural class of the Spanish Culinary Arts Program at Manhattan’s International Culinary Center, debuting on February 5. The scholarships—two worth the full $26,000 tuition amount, the other another whopping $20,000, will be awarded based on merit and financial need, and are funded by cured meats company Campofrio Food Group, sbe hospitality firm’s Sam Nazarian, and José Andrés with his ThinkFoodGroup (donated in the name of his Washington, D.C. tapas haven Jaleo).
The students will spend 10 weeks in ICC kitchens, followed by a week in Spain with Andrés (who is also the dean of Spanish culinary arts), where they’ll be introduced to chefs, butchers, winemakers, cheesemakers, and other Spanish purveyors.
On Thursday, January 3, ICC will host an open house for students interested in learning more about the Spanish program. Those interested in attending can RSVP here. Students must submit their application on or before January 11.
