Senspire is proud to announce that it has partnered with California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo to establish a scholarship for juniors and seniors majoring in Food Science beginning with the 2021-2022 academic year. The recipient of the Senspire Scholarship will be awarded a nonrenewable amount of $1,000. The scholarship aims to reward students who are passionate about food science innovation. A minimum 3.0 GPA is required and financial need will be considered in the selection process.

The company believes that the university’s educational philosophy fuels innovative thinking, which is front and center to Senspire’s values and prompted the creation of the Senspire Scholarship. The scholarship aims to help “Ignite Your Innovation” by supporting the pursuit of excellence in food science education. The Founder and President of Senspire, Gregory Willis, said “We are proud to sponsor this scholarship as it aligns with our core value of continuous innovation. We hope the recipients will take this opportunity to pursue food science careers that propel the industry forward and onward.”

Dr. Stephanie Jung, Cal Poly’s Food Science and Nutrition Department Head said, “The Senspire scholarship for students in our food science program provides a unique opportunity to apply our Learn by Doing methodology to projects that will have a significant impact on the industry. Thanks to Senspire's generosity, students will be “Ready Day One” to succeed in their chosen fields. We are grateful for Senspire's partnership in preparing tomorrow's leaders in food science.”
