FMI Foundation Adds Food Safety Auditing Scholarships
The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Foundation has introduced a scholarship program for students with food and agricultural science majors who are interested in the field of accredited food safety auditing.
The foundation’s scholarships are awarded based on academic ability, leadership potential, motivation and initiative, including passion for the food industry and the auditing profession. This latest program will offer audit training and financial incentives to college undergraduates and graduate students pursuing food science majors.
“FMI’s Foundation supports the future and the credibility of the food supply,” noted Cathy Polley, executive director of the Arlington, Va.-based FMI Foundation, adding that the program would “help curate the talent for future leadership within the critical field of food safety.”
Applications are currently being accepted for the 2013-14 academic year.
