Our Foundation will be quite busy during this holiday season! In December, we plan to open applications for a number of opportunities, including our 2021 Award and Research Grants. Applicants can apply for funding for continuing education, recognition, international, and program development awards, as well as funding for innovative research in nutrition and dietetics. The applications and respective deadlines will be made available within the Foundation’s application portal. These awards and grants empower our members and elevate our profession. I encourage everyone share the news about these wonderful opportunities for students, seasoned professionals, and Academy members in the next few weeks.
Spend a few moments and watch how our awards and grants are making a difference in our profession and impacting the overall health of the general public.
All of our awards and grants are only made possible through the generosity of our donors. Together we are helping create a world where all people thrive through the transformative power of food and nutrition. Please keep the Foundation in mind this holiday season and consider a year-end gift.
