FCI offers tuition reduction, scholarships

The French Culinary Institute (FCI) and its sister school, the Italian Culinary Academy (ICA), are offering a 10 percent tuition reduction targeted to recent high school graduates, as well as a scholarship from the Friends of the FCI for career courses at the school that start this summer.

The tuition reduction is intended for 17- to 20-year-olds who received a valid high school diploma within two years of the enrollment date at the FCI or the ICA. And beginning in August, the reduction will apply to high school graduates who enroll in all of the career programs at the FCI: Classic Culinary Arts, Classic Pastry Arts, International Bread and the Italian Culinary Experience.

Additionally, the Friends of the FCI is offering a $10,000 Summer Scholarship for a student who enrolls in the Classic Culinary Arts or Classic Pastry Arts programs that begin in July or August. The application deadline is July 31. For more information, visit www.frenchculinary.com.
