Undergraduate Scholarships

One or more annual fellowship awards shall be made to international graduate students who are majoring in Nutritional Sciences. For the purpose of this endowment, an international student is defined as non-United States citizen or non-resident alien who intends to return to his/her native country after graduation. The donor requests that strong preference be given to women students. The fellowship is renewable annually if the recipient continues to make satisfactory progress towards a degree. If the scholarship is not awarded to qualified applicants in the Nutritional Sciences Department of the College of Human Environmental Sciences within 18 months after it becomes available, the award may be given to a qualified applicant majoring in Food Science in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. The award then reverts back to the College of Human Environmental Sciences and the cycle begins over.

One or more annual scholarship awards shall be given to students entering their 1st or 2nd year in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology in the College of Human Environmental Sciences. Financial need may be used as selection criteria, but is not a requirement for award.

This award goes to a student in Dietetics who is eligible for enrollment in junior-level Dietetics courses the year following the award, has at least a 3.0 GPA and possesses leadership potential.

This scholarship provides support for students in the Coordinated Dietetics Program in Nutritional Sciences in the College of HES. Funds will be awarded to students pursuing the R.D. credential who have already been accepted into the Coordinated Program in Dietetics and could include, but not limited to, students with an interest in community nutrition, fitness, wellness; patient or client education in the areas of prevention and management of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and renal disease. It could also include students interested in working with individuals and families with disabilities and chronic disorders, such as Down Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.

Distributions may be used for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to: cash awards to teaching assistants selected for recognition; support for travel and/or professional development opportunities for teaching assistants; recognition events for teaching assistants; and educational materials or resources for teaching assistants.

Shall be used to support nutrition research in the College of Human Environmental Sciences. It is expected that the research supported by this fund will have clear application to the betterment of the human condition and could, thus, be of either a basic or an applied nature. Criteria for selection of the awardee(s) are: faculty member in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition; nutrition research with a clear focus on human nutrition; ability of the faculty member to successfully complete the research; potential of the supported research to enhance opportunities to secure external funding; and relevance of the research to departmental focus and mission. While it is anticipated that the award would be made to a faculty member, it may be used in various ways, including but not limited to: direct support of the faculty member’s research, support for graduate student research, support for graduate student travel to professional meetings to present research findings, stipends for graduate students, etc.

The award is given to a junior or senior female student in Nutritional Sciences with a grade point average of 3.40 or above on a 4.00 scale.

This fund provides a scholarship for a junior or senior majoring in Dietetics. Selection is based on financial need and above-average scholarship.

This award will provide support to outstanding undergraduate students in Nutritional Sciences who are conducting original research as part of the Nutritional Sciences Undergraduate Summer Research Internship program or the Academic Year Research Internship program. Preference will be given to students conducting research directly related to human nutrition, dietetics and/or exercise physiology.

Given to a worthy student in Food Science and Human Nutrition/Dietetics.

This scholarship will provide awards to students majoring in nutritional sciences in the College of HES.

This award supports undergraduate students and faculty research in Food Science and Human Nutrition. The research must have a clear application to the betterment of the human condition and can be of either a basic or applied nature. A separate application is made with an accompanying research proposal.

This award is for a senior Dietetics student who has shown consistent growth over two years in the program, has a sincere and caring spirit for clients and shows professional potential.

One or more annual awards shall be given to graduate students in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology with an undergraduate dietetics degree or pursuing a graduate degree jointly with a dietetics degree.
