Leading food ingredient manufacturer Macphie has agreed to expand its scholarship at Abertay University, offering a second student a £3,000 donation to help with their studies. Macphie’s support for a two year scholarship began in 2019 funding one student on the BSc (Hons) Food and Consumer Science degree. The expanded programme will offer a work placement to a student in their third year.
Fraser Hogg from Macphie’s Employee Trust, which funds the scholarship, said: “As a successful food ingredients manufacturer, Macphie’s reputation for innovation has always relied heavily on the skills and expertise of highly-qualified food technologists.
“The Macphie Employee Trust is keen, where possible, to support and encourage the education of the next generation of potential employees and this scholarship, with a local and prestigious university like Abertay, is an ideal opportunity to do just that.”
