The Foundation has extended the deadline for applications to the NPF Scholarship Fund two weeks, through February 15, 2012.
The purpose of the NPF Scholarship Fund is to provide financial assistance for individuals who are committed to a career in the natural products industry. Specifically, the fund is targeted for students who have demonstrated leadership potential and are enrolled in academic programs to enhance their leadership skills and knowledge of the industry.
By assisting members of the community to meet their professional objectives, the Natural Products Foundation will continue to foster and support the advancement of natural products.
Finalists will be determined and assessed through an interview process to take place in the spring of 2012. Award winners will be announced at the 2012 Natural Products Association MarketPlace trade show.
To begin the application process, students may fill out a preliminary form online: naturalproductsfoundation.org/scholar2012 or return an application through fax or post mail: NPF Scholarship Fund Application.
The recipients of the 2011 NPF Scholarship Fund were Lauren Atwell of Oregon State University and Linda Sousse of the University of Texas Medical Branch. For further info on the NPF Scholarship Fund, please visit naturalproductsfoundation.org/scholarship.
