Established in 1914, Food Northwest is a non-profit association of food companies in Idaho, Oregon and Washington.  We are the people who prepare the bounty of the Northwest to feed the people of the world.  Each year since its 75th anniversary in 1989, Food Northwest and its Education & Research Institute has awarded scholarships to deserving students in the states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington. 

The purpose of these scholarships is to attract and encourage students to pursue a career in the food industry and to encourage and support current employees of the industry to further their education.  The food industry offers a variety of career options and promises an exciting opportunity to work for one of many highly successful, well-known companies.

2019 applications are closed. Stay tuned for the 2020 scholarships in late spring/early summer 2020.
