The Circle of Friends, founded in 1992, is a coalition of alumni, faculty, students, and friends who have joined together to provide ongoing private support to sustain the Department of Nutrition, Food Science, and Packaging’s dedication to excellence. They offer two types of scholarships to students in the department: the Circle of Friends Scholarship for undergraduate students and the Graduate Student Research Assistance Award for master’s students.
The Circle of Friends Scholarships are offered at the beginning of each Spring semester. To read more about the qualifications and to obtain the application, please visit Student Scholarships.
