Jersey City, New Jersey-based Goya Foods is accepting applications for its annual Culinary Arts and Food Science Scholarships.

Students nationwide entering their freshman year of college pursuing an undergraduate degree in culinary arts and/or food science can apply by March 21. Four students will receive $20,000 each.

Goya’s Culinary Arts Scholarship is available to students entering an accredited two-year or four-year institution. Scholarships are in the amount of $5,000 awarded per academic year starting in fall 2023 and are renewable for up to three additional years provided the student remains eligible to receive funding.

“We believe every student should have access to a good education and an opportunity to go to college,” said Bob Unanue, president of Goya Foods.

“As one of the leading food companies in the world, we want to provide the next generation with the possibility of pursuing their passion in the culinary arts and food sciences, while helping to alleviate some of the financial burden of college expenses.”

Recipients of the Goya Culinary Arts Scholarship will be selected based on the requirements established under the Goya Gives program and administered by Scholarship America, including academic achievement, leadership, community service and financial need, as well as an evaluation of an essay explaining how Goya has enriched their family traditions.

Since the inception of Goya’s Scholarship Fund in 2011, Goya has granted more than $1.7 million in scholarships to students nationwide, as well as the children of its employees.
