  • Food is Opportunity!

    The Culinary Institute of America is committed to making your education affordable. We're excited to offer these valuable grants for select programs and entry dates. Just like scholarships, a tuition grant does not have to be repaid.

    Winter and Spring Culinary Arts Grant

    New students enrolling in the CIA's culinary arts program, between December and June at our New York campus, are eligible to receive a $3,000 grant.

    Alumni Referral Grant

    New students who are referred to the CIA by a graduate will receive a one-time $1,000 scholarship. To be eligible, students must include a letter of recommendation from the CIA graduate with their admission application.
