The Juice Products Association Scholarship Foundation was established in 1993. Since then, the Foundation has provided over $300,000 in the form of over 200 scholarships.

Thanks to the generosity of JPA members, the Foundation has been able to grow over the years, increasing the number of scholarships given and the amount of each award. The JPA Scholarship Foundation currently awards sixteen scholarships at eight universities, with leading food science, nutrition or packaging programs, to upper-class undergraduate or graduate students who demonstrate a keen interest in the industry.

“My doctoral project focuses on the quality of HLB affected…oranges and cold pressed oils… I grew up in Central Florida, and the preservation of Florida oranges is very important to me. In the future, I hope to continue working in the area of fresh and processed fruit and vegetable products.”

 “Thank you for helping me pursue a fulfilling career in packaging. By awarding me this scholarship, you have helped lessen the burden of educational expenses.”

“It is an honor to be chosen for this Scholarship. Your contribution to my education is helping create a professional and influential food scientist.”
