How did you learn about the availability of the Foundation Scholarships that you received? I was encouraged by my university to apply for scholarships through the Academy.
What motivated you to apply? Well…dietetic internships are not free 😉
How are you utilizing the funds the Scholarship funds? I used the funds from the scholarships to pay tuition for my dietetic internship. It helped alleviate some of the stress of my dietetic internship; knowing I could actually pay for it.
