The South Eastern Section IFT (SEIFT) is a proud supporter of exceptional students. Every year we award two scholarships to deserving students at each of the universities in our section, one undergraduate and one graduate student. In addition, students are offered discounted registration rates for South Eastern 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 South Eastern 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.
This year, the South Eastern Section IFT sponsored a Student Leadership Workshop in conjunction with our February 2, 2016 Food Expo. Dr. Bob Gravani led the workshop attended by 43 students.
