Holy Cross Announces Food Science Scholarship

University of Holy Cross President Dr. Stanton F. McNeely III and Jazzmen Rice President George Chin shake hands after signing an agreement for a new scholarship and internships between the two organizations.

NEW ORLEANS – The University of Holy Cross Food Science Program and Jazzmen Rice (a variety of the grain created by the LSU AgCenter) have announced a new annual scholarship available to students who attend UHC and enroll in the food science program. In addition, Jazzmen Rice will offer two internships to UHC food science students – one for a student seeking a food science major and another for a student seeking a food business major.

“The combination of the Jazzmen Rice scholarship and internships will provide great opportunities for any students looking to enroll in our growing food science programs,” said UHC Food Science Program Director Dr. Darryl Holiday. “We have a very successful partnership with Jazzmen Rice and this is a great continuation as we start enrolling students for the fall 2020 semester.”

UHC’s Food Science Program and Jazzmen Rice recently collaborated on two new Jazzmen Rice products – a saffron rice blend and a creole tomato rice blend. The products are now available for sale at grocery stores in Louisiana.

UHC’s Food Science Program features a beverage science program and lab funded by the Brown Foundation. The program has partnered with many of Louisiana’s most famous brands.
