2020-2021 Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Scholarship Recipients funded by the Commission on Dietetic Registration

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation thanks the Commission on Dietetic Registration for their generous support of the Foundation’s CDR Diversity, CDR Doctoral and CDR Second Century Scholarships. CDR is helping improve the health of the public by enhancing the pool of talented and diverse students who will become outstanding practitioners, researchers and educators. Since establishing the CDR diversity and doctoral funds in 2010 through our Foundation, we have awarded $2 Million for 300 nutrition and dietetics students at all levels of study.
