Food Science Institute

Loans and Scholarships

Kellogg'sThanks to the Kellogg Company for the Endowed Scholarship in Agriculture. The endowment will provide a scholarship each year to a student in Food Science or Grain Science at Kansas State University.

A special thanks goes to Ray Thackery, a K-State alum, for championing the endowment process. Ray is pictured below being thanked by Curtis Kastner, Director of the Food Science Institute. Also, pictured is Ray along with other K-State alums as well as Kellogg's employees. Just to Ray's right is Margaret Bath, Vice President of Kellogg's Research, Quality, and Technology team. Again, a BIG thanks for Kellogg's support of our programs and students at Kansas State University!

We would also like to thank the W.K. Kellogg Institute for their additional funding for general Food Science Institute student and program support.
