The scholarship proudly offers a singular, centralized application. By completing our scholarship application, the Foundation will automatically consider you for every scholarship we are offering that you meet the eligibility for. If you meet our general eligibility criteria, listed below, we encourage you to consider applying.
General Eligibility Criteria:
Please note, Academy membership is not required to apply for Foundation scholarships but is strongly encouraged, given all but two Foundation scholarships require Academy membership to be awarded.
Please click on the type of program you are enrolled in for your specific eligibility requirements:
Annually, about 75 scholarships are available to individuals who meet the basic requirements for all applicants: Academy membership, U.S. citizenship and enrollment in a ACEND accredited/approved dietetics program. However, about 100 other scholarships are awarded based on additional requirements.
Below are some of the more specific criteria that donors have identified. If any criterion is true of you, don’t hesitate to apply for an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Scholarship this year.
Applicants meeting one or more of the specific qualifications listed above are in no way guaranteed a scholarship; however, they may be eligible for a greater number of scholarships.
