About the Roux Scholarship
The Roux Scholarship is the premier competition for chefs in the UK and ranks among the most prestigious in the world. However, it is far more than just a competition that ends with a prize the same year.
The Roux Scholarship offers the winner a career-changing opportunity that is unrivalled and stretches far beyond the much coveted three-month stage at a three star Michelin restaurant. That is just the start: what follows is the mentoring by the Roux Family, with advice and guidance that can make a career truly exceptional.

The 13 typical skills you need to be the next Roux Scholar
Do you know how to prepare a ‘ballotine’ or make a ‘mousseline’? If so, then you could be in with a chance of winning the Roux Scholarship and, in doing so, open the door to a world of opportunities. This list is by no means definitive but it gives an idea of the typical skills the Roux Family are looking for in the next chef to be crowned ‘Roux Scholar’.
Those with their eye on the life-changing prize don’t need to be working at a Michelin-star restaurant: the Roux Family want to encourage ambitious young chefs, whatever their background, to apply.
