2021 FNCE Foundation Student Stipend Program

By Foundation Admin posted 07-12-2021 03:38 PM


The Foundation’s Student Stipend Program helps current Academy member students attend FNCE®. The Foundation is able to provide student stipends thanks to the generosity of the many Dietetic Practice Groups, Member Interest Groups, state affiliates, and individual Academy members who support this program.

Help a Student Attend FNCE®

Help an Academy Student Member attend FNCE® by donating a student stipend and offer the next generation of nutrition and dietetics professionals the opportunity to gain the full CEU and networking experience. A $120 donation covers the cost of one student to attend FNCE and experience FNCE® as well as a small donation to the Foundation that supports our programs and resource that empower Academy students and members. Please make your donation by the early-bird deadline of September 30 while registering for FNCE®, logging back into your registration dashboard or using our printable contribution form.
