The Women's Foodservice Forum (WFF) is now accepting applications for the second-annual WFF Sewell Scholars Award. The scholarship program, in partnership with Sysco Corporation, offers a grant to a high-potential woman in the foodservice industry to attend the WFF Executive Leadership Program.

"The recipient of the Sewell Scholarship will be a woman who shows an outstanding commitment to continuing her education," says WFF president and CEO Fritzi Woods. "This grant enables the recipient to build leadership skills and strengthen her ability to be a leader within her organization and her community."

Scholarship recipients receive a $15,000 grant covering attendance and accommodations at the WFF Executive Leadership Program held annually during the WFF Executive Summit, and biannually at the Kellogg School of Management's campus.

This year's scholarship recipient will also receive a complimentary registration to attend the WFF's Annual Leadership Development Conference, with travel and accommodations included.

Individuals interested in applying for or nominating someone to receive the award must return completed applications to WFF headquarters by January 15, 2013.

The award recipients will be announced at the WFF Leadership Development Conference on April 14-17, 2013, in Orlando, Florida.
