Summer Scholars

IFT partners with universities to fund their Summer Scholars programs which introduce college students to the science of food. These programs take place over the summer months and students receive an in depth look at food science and research. Students are recruited from other universities and from all different disciplines. Funding this program is one more way that Feeding Tomorrow fulfills its mission by encouraging the best young minds to pursue careers in the science of food!

Summer Scholars Program

"It’s very important to get a lot of internship experience, whether it’s research-based or in the industry. It gives you a broader perspective of working in the lab or on the floor of a product plant, and you can apply what you learned in the classroom. Life experience is one of the best ways to learn."
