I encourage students to apply for scholarships through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Scholarships awarded by the Academy Foundation are generally for Academy members enrolled in 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.
You must be a student member to be eligible for these scholarships. You are qualified if you are in the dietetics option or planning to enter the dietetics option at Penn State. To apply, visit www.eatright.org . The Membership application can be completed online, but must be received at the Academy by February 15th in order for the Academy to process it and assign a member number in time for you to meet the scholarship submission deadline of March 19. The application can be accessed here: http://www.eatrightfoundation.org/foundation/scholarships/
Many Penn State students have received scholarships, average awards are usually about $1,000.
