June 4, 2018 to August 10, 2018
Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL and Institute for Food Safety and Health, Bedford Park, IL
Are you an undergraduate student interested in exploring myriad opportunities in food safety, food engineering and nutrition? Food science is a STEM area which produces far fewer graduates than the available job opportunities. Would you like to undergo a rigorous mentoring and professional development training along with a paid research internship to fine-tune your skill sets required to help you to become successful scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs?. You will be trained by mentors from the Illinois Institute of Technology and Food and Drug Administration for a 10 week period. The selected students will receive a stipend of $500/week along with support for travel, accommodation, and meal plan via funding from the National Science Foundation (Award # 1757989).
