Award Recipients

CRFS Student Awards


Every spring semester, the UA Center for Regional Food Studies (CRFS) offers up to 3-5 awards of $500 to any UA graduate or undergraduate student in support of food-related research or educational activities over the summer months. Funds can be used to cover tuition costs or other expenses related to the successful completion of planned academic work related to food.

If awarded funding, recipients are expected to:

  • File a 1-page summary describing how the funds helped to support your academic goals and/or research. 
  • Share a 15–20-minute oral presentation at a CRFS grad panel event in the semester following the award period.
