The Flavor & Extract Manufacturers Association of the United States recognizes the invaluable role education and science have in preparing the next generation to support and advance flavor and food safety. In 2018 FEMA envisioned a program that would introduce chemistry students to the flavor industry and its unique career possibilities, as well as acknowledge academic excellence and dedication to science. Recognizing that future success is often a combination of talent and access to opportunity, the FEMA College Scholarship Program was created and will be piloted in 2018. The award acknowledges the potential of enterprising chemistry students and their dedication to sound science.
