As part of Feeding Tomorrow’s Food4Thought initiative, four high school students from Girls, Inc. in Orange County, CA attended the IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo® for an immersion in food science.
IFT members in Chicago were invited to participate in the Museum of Science and Industry’s first annual Hot Jobs, Cool Careers career fair for STEM fields during the first weekend of October. Over twenty IFT members staffed the IFT table throughout the weekend, greeting thousands of children and parents, introducing them to future careers, and helping them to catch the food science spirit!
Applications for Feeding Tomorrow Scholarships are now available! Last year, Feeding Tomorrow awarded over $100,000 to the most outstanding IFT student members. Feeding Tomorrow scholarships are available exclusively to IFT student members. Your IFTSA membership allows you to apply for our general food science scholarships, as well as specialized scholarships with specific academic focuses, such as food engineering, flavor chemistry, or nutraceuticals.
