Enter the 2018 #CulinaryVoice Scholarship Contest Today

Entries are officially open for the 2018 #CulinaryVoice Scholarship Contest, and this year, the pot gets even sweeter: scholarship finalists will compete on ABC’s The Chew for the chance to win one of four full scholarships – worth more than $160,000 – to attend one of ICE’s award-winning Culinary Arts or Pastry & Baking Arts career programs.

For this year’s contest, public vote will determine the semi-finalists and the finalists will appear on The Chew to compete for the coveted awards. The Chew’s co-hosts Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Michael Symon, will host the finals with four celebrity chefs serving as mentors. Meanwhile, ICE’s chef-instructors will teach the contestants culinary skills and judge the finals.

“We never dreamed that what began as a creative way to award scholarships would become a worldwide sensation. Then, to have some of the biggest names in the food industry – like Marcus Samuelsson, Ted Allen, Duff Goldman and Donatella Arpaia – get behind us, millions of votes and the 26 lives we’ve already changed through these scholarships is very gratifying,” said Rick Smilow, ICE’s president and CEO. “And now having the finals air on the number one food and lifestyle show on TV, takes our scholarship program to a whole new level. The school has helped more than 14,000 alumni find their culinary voice and this year, we’re going to add to that in a big way.”

How to Enter

Entrants upload an original one-minute video to demonstrating their creativity and passion for food, who or what inspires them and what they hope to achieve in the culinary or hospitality industries. They’ll tell the world why they deserve a scholarship and the chance to study at ICE – named America’s best culinary school by The Daily Meal (2016). Entrants can select from two of ICE’s career training programs in Culinary Arts or Pastry & Baking Arts, as well as their desired campus of choice in New York City or Los Angeles.

Entering is easy. Winning is life-changing.
