Hungry to Lead College Scholarship
The Hungry to Lead College Scholarship is an award with multiple winners!
There are three scholarships available totaling over $5000.
- The Amana Leadership Scholarship, $2500
- The Hungry to Lead Scholarship, $1500
- The Leadership Recognition Award, $500 (2 awarded)
Here are the guidelines and details:
- Open to U.S. high school seniors and college students
- Students must be pursuing (or planning to pursue) a degree in food service/hospitality or a similar program
- Minimum GPA 2.5
- Minimum ACT 18/SAT 1300
- Students must show extracurricular activities and leadership
- Deadline to apply is July 1
- Two submission options: Online or U.S. Postal Service
Winning Tips: My very best tip for this scholarship is to choose the submission option that allows students to mail in their application and supplemental materials. Take advantage of the unique method of applying that I have detailed in my scholarship guide ebooks here and create a scholarship application packet that will be different from all the rest of the applicants.

Read about last year’s winner and get a feel for the kind of student that the judges are looking for. This is a fairly new college scholarship award (it was initiated in 2014), so there will be less competition than bigger, more nationally known scholarships. Focus on leadership and the food service/hospitality industry in your essay and make sure to include all three parts of the essay prompt.
Ask a professional in the foodservice/hospitality industry that knows your leadership skills, work ethic and experience to write your letter of recommendation.
