Academy Spokesperson, Debbie Petitpain, MS, RDN, LDN recently joined the RD2BE Podcast as a guest with host and past Foundation Board member, Carl Barnes, MS, RD to discuss ways our Foundation empowers students to succeed on their path to a career in nutrition and dietetics. Over the course of Petitpain’s 20-year career, she has received a Foundation scholarship and award as well as serving as a past Foundation Fellow.

Petitpain explained that, while there are more than one hundred Foundation scholarship opportunities, students only need to complete one application to be considered for all scholarships that they meet the criteria for.

Barnes and Petitpain also share insights on how to get involved with the Foundation, discussing why their involvement and how they choose to give back. Check out the full podcast.

The Foundation scholarship application for the Fall 2021-2022 school year is now open. Appy today!

Barnes provides a variety of resources for students pursuing careers in nutrition and dietetics on the RD2BE website.
