This year’s eG Scholarships awards were made possible by the generous support of the eGullet Society’s donors and sponsors. The overwhelming majority of the funding for this year’s eG Scholarships program came from individual Society donor member and staff contributions of $50, $100 and $250.
The eGullet Society is now raising funds for next year’s eG Scholarships program. Maintaining and expanding the eG Scholarships program will only be possible, however, if those who gave last year give again and if many new donors give as well.
To support the eGullet Society at the $50, $100 or $250 per year level, please sign up for a Society donor membership (note: you must already be an eGullet Society member in order to upgrade to a Society donor membership; if you are not a member please join). Society donor members receive, depending on which package they select, increased personal messenger storage allotments; increased ImageGullet storage; additional features, including personal messenger with carbon copy and attachments, unlimited searching without flood control, and priority access to new features upon release; exclusive gift items; and most importantly the knowledge that they are supporting the eG Scholarships and other program services of the eGullet Society. For higher levels of support, please contact the eGullet Society fundraising team: giving@eGullet.org or 212.828.0133
The eGullet Society for Culinary Arts & Letters is a 501c3 not-for-profit public charity, dedicated to increasing awareness and knowledge of the arts of cooking, eating and drinking, as well as the literature of food and drink. To administer the eG Scholarships program, the eGullet Society has partnered with the Culinary Trust, also a culinary nonprofit. The Culinary Trust processes all eG Scholarships applications, assembles a panel of independent judges (no eGullet Society staff participate in the judging, nor are they eligible for eG Scholarships awards) and handles payment of the awards.
