Stephen Michael Kennedy Scholarship

Created in memory of Stephen Michael Kennedy, whose passion was cooking. He made a career as a chef before his untimely death at 37 years old. This scholarship was created by his uncle John Stern.

The scholarship provides tools and uniforms for a first-semester Culinary Arts student ($500).

YES! I want to support Culinary Arts Students

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.

In 2018, the STC Foundation helped the College purchase 7 West Bay Street as the new location for an expansion of the College’s Culinary Arts program.

STC scholarship funds are managed by the STC Foundation, a 501 (c)3 organization whose sole purpose is to raise private funds to support the mission of the College. Gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
