 I believe the Foundation is integral to the future of our profession and ensuring good nutrition for the public with scholarships for students, research grants, fellowships and awards for members and public education initiatives.     

Donated to the Foundation to assist future professionals. Looking forward to better health and knowledge in the future.

I donated to help the Foundation support aspiring Dietitians.

Why Donate?

The Academy Foundation is proud to have provided $52,550 to Dietitians in Business and Communications Dietetic Practice Group members and students since 2018 through our scholarship, award, and research grant programs.

"I am grateful to be the recipient of the Colonel Katharine E. Manchester Scholarship. This scholarship was incredibly helpful during one of the most curcial moments of my career. Without this scholarship, I would have been burdened by the cost of my final year to become a registered dietitian. I can honestly tell you, this scholarship took a big weight off my shoulders and boosted my enthusiasm for the future. Now, I am doing what I truly love and helping others live better lives. The Academy Foundation has played a meaningful part of the journey that got me to where I am today."

"This scholarship makes possible my continued education as a Dietetic Intern in the Program in Nutrition, Teachers College, Columbia University. By alleviating the financial hardship, both due to the unpaid nature of the dietetic internship and impact of COVID-19, this scholarship allows me to focus on learning new skills, cultivating competencies, and gaining exposure and insight to the world of dietetics. Additionally, I’m incredibly passionate about improving diversity and inclusion in our profession, and because of this scholarship, I am able to dedicate more time to my volunteer position with the non-profit Diversify Dietetics as a mentor and writing coach, providing personalized feedback and support on personal statements and resumes."
