Student Club Funding
SCIFTS offers funding for Food Science Clubs. There are many activities that qualify for funding. The Club members need to plan the program(s) and schedule speakers. Clubs may come to SCIFTS for funding to offset the expenses of the speaker (travel, lodging, plus), room fees, audio visual equipment, etc. for the program. Or the funding could be used to offset expenses for a team to compete in the Western Regional IFT College Bowl.
Education and Research Grants
SCIFTS Education and Research Grants are available to educational research institutions that advance food science, nutrition and closely related technologies within the SCIFTS' geographical area. Funding proposals will be evaluated on the potential contribution to further the knowledge in the fields of food science and nutrition, and on the potential contribution to develop students as competent scientific investigators or educators in these disciplines. The emphasis is to enhance programs that will benefit a large segment of the student population.
