The Intermountain Section IFT is a proud supporter of exceptional students. Every year student scholarships are awarded to students at the UI/WSU Joint School of Food Science, BYU-Idaho, and the College of Southern Idaho.

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 Intermountain 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.
