Students can now apply for a travel scholarship to attend IAFP’s European event on food safety.

The International Association for Food Protection’s (IAFP) European Symposium is in Aberdeen, Scotland from May 3-5, 2023.

Graduate and undergraduate students living in Europe and enrolled in a college or university food safety-related degree program in Europe are encouraged to apply.

The scholarship supports the travel of two students to attend the food safety conference. The deadline to apply is Jan. 10, 2023, and more details can be found here.

Applicants must be student members of IAFP and full-time graduate or undergraduate students. Previous recipients cannot apply.

Registration for the event will open in January 2023 and early prices range from €115 ($118) for IAFP student members to €740 ($761) for non-members.

The call for symposia and roundtables closed in October but technical and poster abstract submissions is open until Jan. 17, 2023.

IAFP represents more than 4,500 food safety professionals. The association includes educators, government officials, microbiologists, food industry executives, and quality control experts.
