2017-2018 Scholarship Information

Thanks to various food companies, food industry trade associations, professional societies and individuals, the OSU Department of Food Science and Technology is fortunate to coordinate a reasonable number of scholarships and grants.

Most student awards are undergraduate scholarships which recognize academic performance and achievement in Food Science (which includes club activities, internships, or other professional development activities within the Food Science field).
