The Sylvia Rowe Fellowship Award was established as a tribute to the former International Food Information Council (IFIC) and IFIC Foundation President & CEO, Sylvia B. Rowe, to help promising nutrition and food safety communicators enhance their capabilities. The Sylvia Rowe Fellowship Award was created to help deserving individuals further develop skills in the area of nutrition and food safety communication. The goal of this award is to develop the recipient’s nutrition and food safety communication skills that he or she can and will apply to communicating nutrition and food safety information to the public in an academic setting, professional situation (either for-profit or nonprofit sector) or other public venue.
The recipient will be awarded an 8–12 week paid internship ($600 per/week) at the IFIC/IFIC Foundation offices in Washington, DC. The internship needs to be completed by the end of 2019.
