To provide support through promoting and rewarding the excellence of students pursuing careers in the science of food and to assist them to plan to continue their education by pursuing an undergraduate degree, IFT’s Feeding Tomorrow Foundation has launched its Feeding Tomorrow First-Year Student Scholarships Program for the academic year 2022-2023. Up to eight students will be awarded this tuition fee scholarship.
IFT has designed this scholarship program, administered by Scholarship America, for individual programs offered at an HERB-approved university. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin. Undergraduate programs offered at an eligible university can be applied to participate in this scholarship program. The students wishing to win this scholarship must plan to enroll as full-time or part-time first-year students and have a minimum 3.0 GPA.
Feeding Tomorrow is the Foundation of the Institute of Food Technologists. Feeding Tomorrow is committed to actively addressing barriers to access to education and science, especially for those who have been impacted the most by food inequity. The foundation works to raise both the awareness of and interest in the science of food as a desirable career path. It ensures the world has the ability to feed a growing and diverse population by attracting, retaining, and celebrating the creative and innovative minds of future food scientists.
