Established by late Association Board Member and Arts Festival Culinary Pavilion Founder Gary Ciuca, the MCI scholarship allows for a legacy in developing future culinary artists.
The non-profit Coconut Grove Arts and Historical Association produces the annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival, and since its inception in 1963 has awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to students who attend fine arts programs in local schools.
