Student Grant

The DNS Student Grant is designed to enable an undergraduate or graduate student in the field of dietetics/nutrition or a dietetic intern/AP4 student to attend the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE®) or an alternative nutrition support  conference (e.g. Clinical Nutrition week, DNS symposium or local parenteral or enteral nutrition support conference). 

The goal of the grant is to foster mentoring of the future leaders of nutrition support dietetics by existing practitioners.  Inspiring and motivating students to share the expertise of mentors serves as a bridge to the future of the profession.  The Academy’s FNCE® or alternative nutrition support conference provides an excellent opportunity for the student to be exposed to all the various fields of practice in nutrition support dietetics.  Through the participation and visibility of DNS at FNCE® or Nutrition Week functions, the scholarship recipient will receive special insight into the mission and initiatives of DNS and the Academy.

  • DNS Student Grants are awarded to an undergraduate or graduate student to promote his/her education with a $500 award

Submit the application form, the letter written by the DNS member nominating the student, and the letter written by the applicant by August 1, 2017. Click here to apply.  Send the completed packet to the current DNS Nominating Committee via email @
