We invite you to take part in our annual scholarship competition for the autumn of 2018! HRC Culinary Academy will grant a scholarship of 2000 euro to a motivated and talented person who wish to become a professional in the Culinary Arts. In order to apply for the scholarship you have to be accepted as a student in our Culinary Arts programme.
This time the theme of the competition is “Modern Healthy Cuisine”. We shall expect from you to present us a recipe created by you. This could be a main dish, salad or dessert. We want to see how creative are you, so it is up to you to decide what to prepare and how to introduce it to us.
The contest is organized in two parts - presenting a recipe and writing an essay.
Part I – The Recipe – forms 50% of the grade
The recipe must be presented in a way that clearly shows your own input and personal contribution. It is up to you to decide, if you want to make a video, prepare a presentation, take pictures of the development steps or find other creative ways to present your recipe as detailed as possible.
The Recipe will be graded as follows: Theme (10%), Presentation/Media (30%), Recipe/Techniques (10%), Enthusiasm/Motivation (30%) and Originality (20%).
Just as a hint, we have experienced that videos can be really influential and the more visuals your application has, the more interesting it becomes.
Part II – The Essay – forms 50% of your grade
The essay should be on the following topic “Modern Healthy Cuisine”.
You should further describe your reasons and motivation to choose the specific recipe, to show your attitude towards cooking and your motivation to become a chef. The better you explain your motivation and arguments, the closer you will be to winning the scholarship contest. The essay, as well as the recipe must be written in English.
The essay should be up to 700 words and not shorter than 350 words.
The essay will be graded as follow: Topic/ Interpretation of the given topic (10%), Enthusiasm/Motivation (20%), Originality (20%) and Writing skills (50%).
To be fair, we will give you 50% for the first part and 50% for the second part. This way, no matter if you are more into writing, or more into cooking and presenting your masterpiece, you still have equal chances to get to the top.
Please, send your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org, if your files are too big, feel free to use any file transfer service convenient to you (for example - dropbox, google drive, wetransfer.com, youtube.com (just for your video), etc.).
Deadline for sending your application is August 31, 2018 and the results will be announced after the opening of the new semester on September 17, 2018. Please make sure to submit your application for the Culinary Arts degree program as well, otherwise you risk missing the deadline for enrollment and respectively the chance to take advantage of the scholarship, as it can be granted to accepted students only. Both from and outside the EU interested in September 2018 or March 2019 intakes are eligible to participate in the competition.
Good luck and cook your heart out!
