"What makes this year's batch stand out is that it is the most diverse and inclusive group of students we have selected so far since the inception of this initiative,"
The Class of 2022 comprises 40 candidates from over 140 applications received from a wide range of hotels and restaurants across the UAE. The selected candidates hail from countries as widespread as India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Kenya, Cameroon, Egypt, Palestine, and Syria, representing the UAE's rich diversity and inclusivity. Thanks to the Scholarship, all 40 candidates will receive one full year of world-class culinary education completely free of charge at ICCA Dubai.
The primary focus of this initiative is to educate, train & certify the talented and deserving but financially underprivileged young chefs who are currently working in the UAE's hospitality industry. Leading Hotels and restaurants from across UAE send in applications on behalf of those staff members who the establishment believes deserve the chance to acquire globally recognised industry-standard qualifications, which is the hallmark of the Professional Chef Training Programs at ICCA Dubai. Out of all the applications received, the Scholarship Committee chooses the 40 most deserving candidates each year.
Since 2014, a total of 123 candidates have received the benefit of the ICCA Dubai One Million Dirham Continuing Education Award for UAE Young Industry Chefs at a cumulative cost of approximately AED 5 million.
ICCA Dubai dedicates the success of this program to its team and strategic partners, the Emirates Culinary Guild, its member Chefs, City & Guilds, UK and the WorldChefs,
