AIB awards scholarships annually to self-sponsored* students attending AIB's 16-week Baking Science and Technology (BS&T) course. A single scholarship application form assures the candidate of consideration for all awards. The failure of an applicant to qualify for a scholarship does not affect admission status; he or she may still attend AIB's 16-week course, provided he or she is otherwise qualified.
(*If you work in the baking industry and your employer pays for you to attend the course, you are a "company-sponsored" student. If you are not yet employed in the baking industry, you are a "self-sponsored" student. Students are required to take the complete course.)
Scholarship recipients are selected by a committee of AIB faculty and staff. The committee considers educational background, the three letters of recommendation, and work experience relative to the baking and food industries. Funding for the various scholarships come from corporations, clubs, professional organizations, and individuals. These scholarships range in value from $500 to the cost of the full tuition. All scholarship awards are applied directly to the tuition cost. To receive priority consideration, send your application before May 1 for fall scholarships and November 1 for spring scholarships. Applications received after priority dates are considered in the order received.
