The total annual amount of the award will be $250 to one applicant. Applicants should show a strong interest and desire in continuing their studies in the sugar arts field and willingness to share that knowledge with others.

This yearly awarded grant is be used within a one year time frame from the date of issue.* 25% of the grant money may be used for documented class supplies. The classes must be conducted by either ICES improved instructors or through an ICES sanctioned event, or a certified culinary institute or institution. At the close of their grant award, and within 2 subsequent MassICES DOS meetings, the recipient must host a demonstration during a MassICES DOS at least 15 minutes in length featuring at least one of the techniques learned in their studies. This must be scheduled in advance with the current MassICES State Representative.
A committee will be formed each year to evaluate and choose the recipient of the award. The award shall be granted at the June DOS each year as long as the funds are available within the MassICES treasury. Funds for this grant are garnered from the proceeds of our special book raffles at each DOS and also from both private and corporate sponsorship.
