Scholarship Description

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation’s number of scholarships vary annually.

Applicants must be enrolled in one of the following programs for a minimum of four months during the academic year:

  • The junior or senior year of a baccalaureate or coordinated program in dietetics, or;
  • The second year of study in a dietetic technician program, a dietetic internship program, or a graduate program.

If your application is pending for a program, such as a dietetic internship, you will not qualify for a scholarship until you receive confirmation of acceptance. Some scholarships require membership in a specific dietetic practice group, and/or residency in a specific state. Academy membership is required for all but two Foundation scholarships.
