Alyssa is a 2023 IFMA Education Foundation scholarship recipient. She attends Michigan State University and is studying Food Science.  

In Allysa's own words:  

I am so thankful that IFMA supports my education and cares about my learning. 

At Michigan State University, I am a senior majoring in Food Science, with a concentration in basic science and minor in Beverage Science and Technology. 

I am the President of Food Science Club, Captain of MSU’s Mars IFTSA Product Development team, Great Lakes IFT Student Representative, and the Project Manager on a seasoning blend fundraiser project for Food Science Club. Thanks to IFMA, I am now one step closer to reaching my academic and professional goals. 

Thank you so much for your investment on my amazing education here at MSU. This award will allow me to focus on my learning and growth in my last year in my undergraduate degree.  

During my time as President of Food Science Club and in my professional future, I hope that I can help other students reach their academic and professional goals in the way you have helped me. Thank you so much for making this opportunity possible.
