If you happened to see high school students this year on IFT’s food expo floor in Chicago or middle school students attending programming in McCormick Place Convention Center, you witnessed participants who were part of Feeding Tomorrow’s Food4Thought initiative, a total group of more than 90 students who were invited to IFT15 to get immersed for a brief time in food science and food technology, learning from experts in the profession.
Thank you to all of the students who applied for scholarships this year! Applications for Feeding Tomorrow Scholarships will be available again in the Fall! This year, Feeding Tomorrow awarded over $160,000 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.
