The Harry A. Bell Grants for Food Writers

The Culinary Trust Seeks Applicants for the
Harry A. Bell Grants for Food Writers
Applications now being accepted

Louisville, KY (January 10, 2007)—The Culinary Trust is offering grants for travel and research to food writers during the pre-contract phase of their book proposal. Applications are available and will be accepted until May 31, 2007.

The late Julia Child and Eva Haller established the grant program in 1999 as a memorial tribute to their friend, Harry A. Bell. He encouraged and appreciated serious culinary pursuits and was a mentor to many in the culinary profession.

A committee of culinary professionals will evaluate each application and the Trust will notify recipients by September 15, 2007. The amount of funding typically ranges from $3,000-$4,000, but can vary according to the applicant’s proposal and expense budget. Recipients have one year to use their research grant. Completed applications, supporting materials and a $10 processing fee are due May 31, 2007.
