The mission of the Quillisascut Education Fund (QEF) is to foster, advance, and promote educational and cultural programs on environmental health and sustainability, culinary arts, and nutrition. QEF fulfills this mission by granting scholarships to individuals who wish to attend food sustainability programs at QEF- approved educational institutions. By granting scholarships QEF helps make education and training on food and sustainability available to a greater number of students and professionals in the food industry. Scholarship recipients are expected to make a good faith effort to contribute to a growing network of sustainable practices as they implement what they have learned in their classrooms, workplaces, and communities.
Scholarships are now being offered for food service professionals and higher education culinary students at:
Seattle Culinary Academy (Seattle Central Community College)
Inland Northwest Culinary Academy (Spokane Community College)
Quillisascut Farm School
