By: Daphne Zepos Teaching Award
The Daphne Zepos Research Award (DZRA) is a new annual scholarship awarded to a food industry professional to further their learning—and their ability to educate others—about cheese. Recipients use the award to research a topic with cheese as part of the central topic. The goal is to produce a piece of media that can be used to further education and understanding about cheese.
To apply, candidates write a brief vision describing what will happen because they earned this award. The award requires that the person have worked in some part of the food industry for three years.
About the Daphne Zepos Teaching Endowment
The endowment is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that funds the annual award. Hundreds of donors have helped make it possible. All the proceeds go towards the annual scholarship.
The DZTE, and the awards it funds, is named in honor of Daphne Zepos, one of America's most inspiring cheese teachers. Daphne lectured, moderated, and presented at the American Cheese Society's Annual Conference. She taught at Slow Food's bi-annual Cheese in Bra, Italy, at the College of Marin, and at courses throughout the country. Daphne passed away in San Francisco in the summer of 2012.
