Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation


The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation is the only charitable organization devoted exclusively to supporting nutrition and dietetics professionals by empowering them to help consumers live healthier lifestyles. The Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and does not receive any portion of member dues, relying solely on donations to thrive. The success and impact of our programs and services are directly attributed to the generous support of our donors.

  • Scholarships: The Foundation is the worldwide leader of dietetics scholarships, and looks to keep pace with a growing pool of student applicants, providing opportunities at all levels of experiential learning and helping to build a qualified and diverse workforce.
  • Awards: Leadership awards given to students, practitioners and faculty recognize the outstanding achievements of Academy members, encouraging individuals to grow as professionals and achieve excellence in new and developing areas of food and nutrition.
  • Research: The Foundation’s research investment in emerging areas, such as nutrition education intervention, advances the Academy and its members as the nutrition experts.
  • Public Education: Building upon its current initiatives, the Foundation continues to expand its programs, such as Kids Eat Right and Future of Food, which provide valuable information to the general public with resources for members to deliver information in their communities.
