At The Culinary Institute of America, we automatically review our applicants for our International Merit Award. New students who have demonstrated academic excellence as shown by their GPA (high school, college, or both), are eligible for a merit-based scholarship applied specifically to tuition charges. Our admissions team will evaluate your academic records automatically during the application process; students do not need to apply separately for this scholarship. The award is renewable with a 3.0 cumulative GPA. The amount awarded ranges from $1,000 – $3,000. It is also renewable for students who maintain a 3.0 GPA while studying with us. Simply apply to any of our associate or bachelor’s degree programs, and once admitted you’ll receive a notification if awarded!
