Programs Of The Institute

The IFT has had a strong, active awards program since 1942, when the first of the Nicholas Appert Awards was given, and a scholarship/fellowship program since 1954 (1). In 1946 the Marcel Loncin Research Price carrying an award of $10,000 was initiated (2). Aside from the Nicholas Appert Award, considered the most prestigious of the awards, there are 11 other major awards for such things as excellence in teaching, significant contributions made to improved public health through nutrition, significant contributions to lipid or flavor science, international award for transfer of knowledge, and an award for technical contributions toward advancement of the food industry. Carrying no monetary award but considered a signal honor is election as a Fellow of the Institute.

In 1997-1998, the IFT awarded 17 freshman scholarships varying from $1000 to $1500, 15 sophomore schol arships in the same award range, 63 scholarships to juniors or seniors with the range of $1000 to $2000 each, and 38 fellowships to graduate students with the range of $1000 to $2500.
