As part of its mission to inspire the next generation of food scientists to feed a growing and diverse population, Feeding Tomorrow, the Foundation of the Institute of Food Technologists, announced applications are now open for both undergraduate and graduate scholarship opportunities.
Feeding Tomorrow offers a variety of academic tuition scholarships for freshman, undergraduate, and graduate students. New this year, undergraduate scholarship applicants are no longer restricted to attending IFT Higher Education Review Board approved programs for 14 new scholarships. Feeding Tomorrow is also implementing application process improvements.
“As an organization, we are committed to actively addressing barriers to education, especially for those who are most impacted by food inequity. Without this, we cannot fulfill our mission of inspiring food scientists to feed a growing and diverse population,” said Feeding Tomorrow Chair Brenda Knapp-Polzin. “With this commitment in mind, the Feeding Tomorrow Board of Trustees voted in support of updates to the academic scholarship program, including the introduction of extended scholarship eligibility.”
The application deadline for both undergraduate and graduate scholarships is March 1, 2022. To learn more about these scholarship opportunities, please visit their scholarship website.
