NRAEF and CKSF create new
scholarship opportunities

The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF), in partnership with the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF), is pleased to announce the launch of the new NRAEF Restaurant Management Scholarship Quiz for current undergraduate students pursuing a degree in the restaurant/foodservice industry. Unlike the NRAEF’s other scholarships, the partnership with CKSF will allow students to compete for scholarship dollars via monthly online multiple-choice quizzes that cover topics related to the restaurant and foodservice industry. Quiz content is taken from the ManageFirst Program, a college-level restaurant and foodservice management program from National Restaurant Association Solutions.

At the end of a monthly scholarship contest, scholarship recipients will be chosen based on their scores on a 15-to-25-question quiz focusing on restaurant management. The 10 students with the highest scores will each win a $500 scholarship award. For the remainder of 2008 and throughout 2009, $60,000 in scholarships will be awarded.
