The Kansas City Section IFT is a proud supporter of exceptional students. Every year we award three scholarships to deserving undergrad, graduate, and PhD students. The criteria, application, and deadline to apply will be posted here. In addition, students are offered discounted registration rates for Kansas City Section IFT meetings.
Beyond supporting scholarships and students in higher learning institutions, section members often participate in programs that raise awareness of food science and the food science and technology industry. Section members can be found in K-12 classrooms throughout the Kansas City area working with younger students to get them excited about food science.
Student members of IFT are encouraged to become involved in the section. The networking offered through section events can be important in the development of your career.
