Each year, the American Cheese Society, in conjunction with the American Cheese Education Foundation and the John Crompton Memorial Scholarship Fund, awards full and partial scholarships to cheesemakers, retailers, students, and local chefs to attend the Annual ACS Conference and Competition.
Full scholarship recipients receive four nights’ hotel accommodation in the conference host city, up to $600 toward travel expenses (reimbursed upon submission of a post-conference essay), and a complimentary conference registration. Partial Scholarship Recipients receive a complimentary conference registration.
