Future Accredited Third-party Food Safety Auditor Scholarships

Download the FMI Foundation Scholarship Application for more details

Food buyers and sellers increasingly rely on accredited third-party certification to help ensure that the products they sell to consumers are safe.  The future of Accredited third-party certification is dependent on a core of well-trained auditors.  Auditors at this level of sophistication require combination of auditing skills, food industry experience and a food science or related degree.  In North America, there is a shortage of well-trained auditors.

The critical issue for accredited third-party auditing in North America is to source the next generation of well-trained auditors.  The FMI Foundation funding provides a way to help fill that gap.  The new program will provide audit training and financial incentives to college undergraduate and graduate level food science majors.

This new foundation program will offer scholarships to deserving food agriculture science majors.
