Without this, we cannot fulfill our mission of inspiring food scientists to feed a growing and diverse population,” said Feeding Tomorrow Chair Brenda Knapp-Polzin. “With this commitment in mind, the Feeding Tomorrow Board of Trustees voted in support of updates to the academic scholarship program, including the introduction of extended scholarship eligibility.”
