Cornell University/University of Massachusetts Food Science Summer Scholars Program

Besides research experience, participants learn about various career opportunities within food science, take field trips to area industries (large and small), as well as meet on a semi-weekly basis to discuss various topics including Ethics in Food Science, Applying for Graduate School, Product Development, Learning from Research, and more. On the last day of the program, scholars are given the opportunity to present their research to an audience of peers. The goal of the research is to train participants to plan and conduct experiments, to evaluate data resulting from experiments, and to communicate research results through oral and written reports.
