You could become a kitchen volunteer. You don't get to sit in on all the classes (you're assigned one to one chef) but you can mingle with the other students and should be able to get a pass for the championship as well. Visit or and click on the "Volunteer" link.

Otherwise, there are no scholarships. There is the option to finance but you'd have to get in touch with the contact on the application form to see what that entails.

Clay, do you know of any possibility of sponsorship, worktrade, or price reduction? Im sure everybody wants a price break any chance they get, but Im involved in my own startup currently and really cant afford $2000 at the moment, but I could see this as being an amazing personal investment in industry exposure, business contacts, and personal education.

Yikes! What a HOT place to teach chocolate-making! in summer yet. I know, I know...air conditioning. Wish I could be there. I'll be catering a wedding in Taos, New Mexico at the time. Have a yummy time.
