The Nathan and Becky Smit Food Innovation Scholarship, a $1,000 renewable award for Kansas State University online undergraduate food science students, will be offered for the first time in fall 2019.
Made possible by the generosity of Nathan and Becky Smit, the scholarship aims to provide financial support for distance students studying food science. Nathan Smit is a 2008 graduate of Kansas State University's distance program in food science. He earned his bachelor's degree and used it to quickly climb the corporate ladder at Hormel Foods Corporation.
