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.

A Message for Head Chefs
When we started the Roux Scholarship my brother Albert and I wanted to strengthen our brigades and we wanted to do that by sending our young chefs away so they could learn more. We hoped that when they came back they would bring with them new experiences and ideas which would make our kitchens stronger and our food better…
Thirty years later many chefs have come through the competition and gone on to greater things. The kitchens those chefs came from have got stronger and stronger. By encouraging your younger chefs to enter the competition you are doing far more than just giving a young chef a chance, you are saying something to the rest of the brigade.
