The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation is the only charitable organization devoted exclusively to supporting nutrition and dietetics professionals by empowering them to help consumers live healthier lifestyles. The Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and does not receive any portion of member dues, relying solely on donations to thrive. The success and impact of our programs and services are directly attributed to the generous support of our donors. The Foundation is proud to serve as the largest provider of dietetic scholarships to deserving students at all levels of study.

Individual scholarships range in value from $500 to $25,000 each. The total amount and number of Foundation scholarships awarded each year is determined by fundraising efforts and investment returns on scholarship funds. Applicants must be pursuing a degree in nutrition and dietetics or a related field and must also intend to practice within the field of dietetics to qualify.

The Foundation accepts applications for scholarships on an annual basis within the Foundation’s external, online application platform. Any person may apply for Foundation scholarships and will be given fair and protected-class-neutral consideration for an award. In addition, all applicants will be entitled to provide at their discretion any lived experiences that they would like to be considered as part of their application.
