The Pritzker Food Safety Scholarship will be awarded to a student whose essays demonstrate a drive to improve food safety and protect public health.

SELECTION PROCESS AND NOTIFICATION:
All essays received will be reviewed by the scholarship committee, including Fred Pritzker, founder and president.
One winner will be chosen for the spring and fall academic semesters.
The scholarship funds awarded are to be used for tuition and books only. Once awarded, a check will be written to the recipient’s school of choice and credited for academic costs. This scholarship is non-renewable and is only good for a one-year cycle. Recipients are only eligible to receive the scholarship once during their lifetime.
Our law firm will select and award the essay winner a $3,000 scholarship. Again, the deadline for the 2016-17 academic year is June 1, 2016.
