The International Food Information Council is on a mission to help today’s eaters understand the science behind our food and how to make healthy, informed dietary choices.

We are always looking for:

  • Communications professionals with a passion for food and nutrition
  • Science “nerds” who want to help people understand the role of evidence in making good decisions about food and health
  • Digital content managers and social media gurus with a flair for the creative
  • Registered dietitians, food scientists or toxicologists who like to explain the science behind the food we eat
  • Multi-taskers who thrive in a dynamic environment that’s rarely the same from one day to the next

If that’s you, send us a note to tell us who you are and how you can help!

Sylvia Rowe Fellowship

While the Sylvia Rowe Fellowship provides a great science communication opportunity, it is with great sadness but a grounding reality that we have realized it is best to not offer the fellowship in 2021. Trust us, we had tissues on standby for tears as the IFIC team made this decision.  

We are honored to work with so many dynamic students and take great pride in the experience we are able to offer our Fellows each year – from the creation of IFIC resources to participating in federal agency meetings to networking with the food and nutrition community in DC, Fellows come away from their time at IFIC with an enhanced communications skill set and a higher level of connectivity to individuals working in this field. With uncertainty about our ability to offer an engaging in-person experience to a Fellow in 2021, we have made the decision to defer the Fellowship until 2022 (tentatively).  

 Please note the details below to prepare for when we are back up and running. We regret that you will not be able to join us this year, and we look forward to starting fresh in 2022! 

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. The Award was created to help deserving individuals further enhance 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, D.C.
