We are happy to announce the establishment of the Chiles Restaurant Group Scholarship. At the Chiles Group we understand the importance of empowering a community to excel in personal growth and development. What better way to empower a community than through the support of the continuing education?
A community is more than just a group of people who live in the same place. A community is a group of individuals, each with his or her own vision about where to go in life. We appreciate the value of that individuality when it comes to education; therefore, this scholarship will support a wide spectrum of educational pursuits.
Scholarships for training include upgrading of current skills, such as those related to nursing, computer competency, mechanical, electrical, and food services, as well as others on an “as approved” basis. Academic training includes Community College programs, Technical or Vocational schools, and College undergraduate and graduate studies.
Qualifying individuals must meet all of the Selection Criteria:
- Current employee or child of current employee of the Chiles Restaurant Group with at least 12 months of service.
- Acceptance into an accredited 2 or 4 year educational institution or technical/vocational school.
- Resident of Manatee County
- Citizen of the U.S.
Other criteria for consideration will include demonstrated leadership, volunteer activities, scholastic record, career objectives, as well as financial need.
We would like to thank the Manatee County Community Foundation for making this scholarship fund possible. This charitable organization, established in 1988, provides opportunities for individuals to create low-cost permanent funds in support of a wide variety of needs, from education, arts, and culture, to those of environment, health care, and human services.
