The Texas Food Processors Scholarship Foundation is a 501c3 subsidiary organization of the Texas Food Processors Association. TFPA is devoted to supporting, promoting and encouraging education in all aspects of the food industry. As food producers, our members play an important role in the food chain today and we strive to enhance professionalism within the food science and technology industry and help bring the next generation of food professionals to the industry through the TFPA Scholarship Foundation. Thus, our scholarship program is granting between $50,000 and $60,000 annually to food science and technology students at Texas A&M University and Texas Tech University.
In 2012, the TFPA Board of Directors voted to utilize a small percentage of monies raised through the Foundation to support Combat Marine Outdoors, an organization supporting wounded warriors. 100% of contributions to the TFPA Scholarship Foundation go towards these two functions. There are no overhead expenses. Donations are tax deductible. TFPA can accept checks as well as credit card payments.
