You may also know they have a privileged position, learning as stages in a three-star restaurant but with all their expenses paid, as special Sammic scholars.
But do you know that it’s almost time to begin the IV Sammic Scholarship for BasqueStage application process? And that you, or an aspiring chef you know, have the chance to do the same?
The BasqueStage Scholarship is a collaboration between Sammic, a European company that manufactures equipment for professional kitchens, and Martin Berasategui, one of the most renowned chefs in the world with several Michelin stars to his name.
There are some important changes to the application process, which we will review in upcoming blog posts, but the most important one is this: on February 20, the FIRST round of applications opens. This semester, there will be two stagesof applications. The first stage will last from February 20, 2012 and March 30, 2012, after which the applications for the scholarship will no longer be accepted.
To apply, candidates should fill out the form found on this website, where they will be asked to submit:
• Personal Information
• A document in PDF format with their resumé including personal, academic and work experience data, and any other relevant information.
• The address of their personal blog, including other social networks’ URLs and usernames if they desire to do so.
• Answer a short question the organizers pose.
Then, on April 1, 2012, the names of 30 candidates chosen to proceed to STAGE TWO. (More on that later).
We are excited about the new application process, and we are looking forward to seeing fresh faces from across the world!
