IFST travel bursaries aim to support attendance at conferences or meetings related to all areas of food science and technology.


  • Only one application may be submitted per student

  • The conference or meeting must be within 6 months of you submitting your application

  • Applications will only be considered from IFST Student and Apprenticeship members

  • Undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled on a full or part-time course in the UK which is related to food science are eligible to apply

  • The applicant must be committed to the following conditions:


Successful applicants will be expected to submit a 250-word summary of the event they attended, take media footage or photos on the day to document your experience. The summary and photos report may be published at IFST's discretion in its publications or website.  You will also be required to answer questions relating to why you’d like to attend the conference or and how it benefits your understanding of the topic.  


Please complete the online application form and send it via email to our Education & Careers Coordinator. 


This competition runs throughout the year.
