Food Safety Auditing Scholarship
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 FMI Foundation is sponsoring scholarships to students currently enrolled in food and agricultural science majors who have a true interest in the field of accredited food safety auditing. These scholarships are extremely competitive and are based primarily on academic ability; leadership potential; motivation and initiative; along with a passion for the food industry and the auditing profession. We want our scholarship recipients to succeed in accomplishing their goal of working in the field of accredited food safety auditing.
