Scholarships

  • There are several scholarships available for Food Science majors that are administered through the University.  If you are enrolled at Clemson University, have a GPR greater than 2.50 and have completed at least 12 hours the previous semester, you are automatically considered for all scholarships that do not have a requirement for financial need.
  • If you wish to be considered for scholarships which require demonstration of financial need, you must complete a form which is available from the Office of Financial Aid, G01 Sikes Hall.
  • Scholarships through Clemson University are awarded for fall semester and for spring semester.  If you are to receive a scholarship for the coming semester, you will be notified during the last week of the previous semester, i.e., in December for spring semester scholarships and in April for fall semester scholarships.
  • Scholarships are also available from the Institute of Food Technologists, the American Dietetic Association and the South Carolina Dietetic Association.  Forms for each of these scholarships are received in the Food, Nutrition, and Packaging Sciences Department office in early January and are due in the association offices by February 15.  It is best not to procrastinate about completing these forms since they are very time intensive and require transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other documents.  We will assist and advise you in your application preparation if you let us know your needs.
  • Announcements are generally made in classes about some of these and other scholarships as deadlines approach.
NOTE:  All scholarship recipients are expected to participate in “Honors and Awards” Programs of the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences.  You will receive a notice of these programs from the Food, Nutrition, and Packaging Sciences Department Chair.
