PHILADELPHIA REGIONAL SECTION
Institute of Food Technologists
The Philadelphia regional Section of IFT offers financial scholarships in studies related to Food Science through its Scholarship Program. The Scholarship Program is designed as a recruitment tool for local colleges and universities that promote the advancement of Food Science/Technology or other closely related fields. The Philadelphia region entails schools whose zip codes begin with the following: 080-084, 087, 180-181, 183-185, 189-194, and 197-198. Scholarships may also benefit local area students who are pursuing degrees at institutions outside the immediate zip code areas. Lastly, the Scholarship Program is intended to provide local food companies with qualified, technically trained individuals to satisfy their employment needs.
The exact number of scholarships will be determined based on funding available. Scholarships will be offered to full time students pursuing degrees in Food Science/Technology or closely related fields. Scholarships are in the amount of $1500 and will be offered to high school seniors, college undergraduates and/or college graduate students who meet the eligibility requirements. Students who wish to be considered for these scholarships must be Philadelphia Section members and must apply via the official Philadelphia Regional Section IFT Scholarship Application Form.
The deadline for submitting an application is March 31, 2011.
