Ammon Foundation Grant to Support PCS Student
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – The Ammon Foundation of Linden, the philanthropic arm of Ammon Labs, will help fund the tuition of an individual in addiction recovery enrolled at Elijah’s Promise’s culinary school this summer. The scholarship grant fulfills a mission of both organizations to help change the lives of underserved and at-risk individuals.
“It is a great honor to partner with Elijah’s Promise and be able to offer a full scholarship to an individual in recovery to attend the culinary school,” said Paula Figueroa-Vega, Director of Scholarship Programs for the Ammon Foundation. “We are certain this is the kind of opportunity that opens doors to employment.”
“The grant of $2,600 will fund half the tuition for a student attending either the culinary program or the baking and pastry program at Promise Culinary School. Elijah’s Promise will match the grant through its fundraising for the culinary school,” said Executive Director Michelle Wilson.
“We are immensely grateful to the Ammon Foundation for its generosity in helping to support a culinary student at our school,” Wilson said. “Our motto is ‘Food Changes Lives,’ and nothing could be more life-changing than the opportunity to learn professional career skills for the food and restaurant industries.”
The scholarship will be designated for student in addiction recovery, who will begin the next session at Promise Culinary School in July. Applications will be accepted until June 1st with a selection expected by June 15th.
