George Macht Scholarship Fund

The George Macht Scholarship was established through the generosity of many College of DuPage Foundations to honor George Macht’s 30+ years exemplary service to College of DuPage’s Hospitality Program. George is a well-known and accomplished educator and chef whose teaching and leadership began in 1976 at COD and continued until his retirement in August 2008. His illustrious career is being recognized by financially assisting students majoring in one of the Culinary or Hospitality programs. The George Macht Scholarship is generously funded by friends, family, and colleagues in honor of George Macht, as well as by George and Vivian Macht. Applicants must be residents of District 502 (College of DuPage’s district), be enrolled in a culinary or hospitality degree-granting program, have a cumulative GPA or better of 2.5 or higher, and file the FAFSA for the applicable academic year. Preference will be given to a student demonstrating financial need. Award: $1,000
