In memory of Patrick J. Polowsky, we will continue providing his educational
resources and content by keeping this website active and open-source.
Patrick J. Polowsky “Pat” was a beloved Food Scientist, educator, creator, and mentor who had a passion
for learning and passing that knowledge on to others. Here you will find Pat’s ability to take complex scientific ideas and masterfully transform them
into digestible information through imagery. If you would like to know more about Pat, you can read this blog post written about him here.
To honor Pat and to keep his legacy alive, his family has set up the Patrick Polowsky Memorial
Scholarship Endowment. This endowment will award a $2000 scholarship to a Purdue Food Science
undergraduate student each year in his name. Please help us by contributing to his endowment.
