The mission of the Quillisascut Education Fund (QEF) is to foster, advance, and promote educational and cultural programs on environmental health and sustainability, culinary arts, and nutrition.

QEF fulfills this mission by granting financial assistance to individuals who wish to attend food sustainability programs at QEF- approved educational institutions, and by providing supplemental financial support to these programs. By granting financial aid and supporting program funding, QEF helps make education and training on food and sustainability accessible to a greater number of students and professionals in the food industry.

Scholarship recipients are expected to make a good faith effort to contribute to a growing network of sustainable practices as they implement what they have learned in their classrooms, workplaces, and communities.

Scholarships are now being offered for food service professionals and higher education culinary students at: Seattle Culinary Academy (Seattle Central Community College), South Seattle College Culinary Arts, Inland Northwest Culinary Academy (Spokane Community College), and Quillisascut Farm School.
