Our Opportunities

WELCOME TO $HEF!

ATTENTION STUDENTS: Summer 2023 scholarships will be posted every Monday until 1/2/2023. Seniors graduating in Spring and students going on extern in Summer are encouraged to apply. If you graduate in Spring or will be on extern in the Summer, the award will be posted on the Spring or Fall semester.

This is the scholarship website for enrolled or incoming students at all campuses of The Culinary Institute of America. To apply for any $hef opportunity, you must log on using your usual CIA log in details-the same that you use when you log on to the CIA Main Menu. Do not use your full e-mail address.

Most scholarships will require a 2022-2023 FAFSA. All US citizens and permanent residence should file the 2022-2023 FAFSA on studentaid.gov before completing your $hef application.

Don’t forget the “external” scholarships! Additional scholarships managed and funded by organizations outside of the CIA are posted through out the year. Just hover over the OPPORTUNITIES tab above and select “External”.
