The Post-Secondary Student Program …

Allows eligible programs to provide culinary students individual ACF Student Memberships for a reduced National and local Atlanta Chefs Association Chapter dues rate of only $55 per student — a decrease of nearly 40% from the regular combined fee of $87.

In addition, the eligible school receives a $10 ACF allowance for each student enrolled for anything ACF related. This includes Membership or Certification fees for instructors, Accreditation fees or ACF Event registrations.

The Secondary Student Program …

Provides FREE ACF National and local Atlanta Chefs Association Chapter Student Membership to any Junior or Senior student attending an ACFEF accredited program.
