Diversity Scholarships and Awards

Through philanthropy, the Foundation aims to empower current and future food and nutrition practitioners to optimize global health. Since 1979, specific Foundation awards and scholarships have been made available for diverse individuals within the field of dietetics. The portfolio of funds established for these purposes has continued to grow since that time. While these individuals are eligible and encouraged to apply for all Foundation funding opportunities, criteria for the following focus on supporting diverse members.
