News Bite: Sylvia Rowe Fellowship Applications Due Feb. 17

Applications for the 2016 International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation Sylvia Rowe Fellowship are currently being accepted. All materials are due by Friday, Feb. 17, 2016

The Sylvia Rowe Fellowship Award was established as a tribute to the former IFIC and Foundation President & CEO, Sylvia B. Rowe, to help promising nutrition and food safety communicators enhance their capabilities. The goal of this award is to develop the recipient's ability to communicate science-based nutrition and food safety information to the public in an academic setting, professional situation (either for-profit or nonprofit sector), or other public venues.

Recipients of the fellowship, which has been offered since 2008, are awarded an 8- to 12-week paid internship at the IFIC Foundation offices in Washington, D.C. Past Fellows have continued forth with successful careers in a variety of business and food industry organizations and academic institutions. You can read about their past experiences in this separate Food Insight article.
