Nutritional Sciences Scholarships

There are many scholarships awarded each year by our department and college. These scholarships do not have applications and everyone who is eligible will be considered.  However, it is helpful to have some additional information from students during the selection process.  Any student can provide information to the Scholarship Committee.
Please send:  1) your resume and 2) a very brief personal statement (no more than 1-page, double spaced) about how you got interested in nutrition, and what you would like to do with your degree when you graduate. Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format is preferred.
You may email these documents to Mr. Scott Barbara at sdb12@psu.edu, attention: Awards Committee.  The items must be received by May 1, 2015 for consideration.
Thank you,
