FPSA Career Development Scholarship

Application Deadline:



ABE, BE, and Food Science


The Food Processing Suppliers Association has established the Career Development Scholarship Program as a unique benefit to its members. It is provided through the generous support of the Foundation of FPSA and is designed to promote the career and professional development of the recipients

The major focus of FPSA's Foundation through the years has been on the future of the food industry. Since its inception in 1983, the Foundation has touched the lives of more than 2,000 individuals in the early years of their careers through its grants, scholarships and stipends. Many of these individuals are now employed in food and dairy science programs in the nation's universities, in major food, dairy and beverage processing companies, and, in some cases, in FPSA member companies themselves.


Scholarships are available in the spring to FPSA member employees who work full time and their immediate family members (spouse and children). Applicants can be high school seniors, college students, or graduate students

Terms of Award:

Up to 10 FPSA Career Development Scholarships will be awarded. Each award is a one-time non-renewable scholarship in the amount of $3,000. The funds will be applied to educational expenses at any accredited college or university in the United States and abroad. Winners of FPSA Career Development Scholarships may re-apply each year as long as eligibility requirements are met. Scholarship recipients may transfer from one institution to another and retain the scholarship.

Please Submit:

You will need your employee ID and other personal demographic information along with the college you plan to attend in the fall. Your ACT and/or SAT scores and your high school class rank are requested. A high school record is a required document for all applicants in order for your application to be considered complete. If you are a college student, you will also be required to submit a college transcript. (Neither of these forms needs to be official)
You will also be asked for information about the eligible employee including employee name, employee social security number, employee?s address and phone number (if different from the student?s), employee?s hire date, employer?s name, employer?s address, and employer?s telephone number.
