Chef Jean Vendeville Scholarship
The Chef Jean Vendeville Scholarship was initiated (2017) and funded solely by Judy & Dick Eckburg in honor of Savannah Technical College Department Head Chef Jean Vendeville.
This scholarship is awarded to the highest GPA Culinary Arts/Baking & Pastry Arts student(s) with the most financial need enrolled in an associate degree program. The award has been $2,000 per student per year for two years for a total of $4,000 per student. Up to two students per year have received this scholarship.
Scholarship funds may be used for tuition, fees, books, and pre-approved academic-related supplies purchased at the Savannah Technical College Campus Shop only. Scholarship funds will not be distributed directly to the student. This means students receiving refunds from the College will not be eligible for scholarships. Transient students are not eligible to receive STC Foundation scholarships.
Privately-funded scholarships are awarded based on criteria established by each of the donors. Any restrictions (age, race, gender, program of study, required hours, GPA, etc.) are included by specific request of the donor and are explicitly tied to the funds received for awards.
