The Department of Nutrition & Dietetics is able to offer several scholarships from endowed funds each year to enrolled students who are declared majors in our department. Students are invited to apply for three types of scholarships: academic, lab assistant, and need. The amount of the award varies according to the funds available to the Department, as well as the number os students who qualify and apply. Applications must be made each spring by filling out a scholarship application which may be obtained from the department office. The Department also awards medals or certificates of merit to students with GPA's of 3.5 or above. An award is also made to the Outstanding Senior in each major. The Outstanding Senior Student in Dietetics Award is presented at the annual state conference.
