Scholarships Available for the Dietetic Intership Program
The Teachers College, Columbia University Dietetic Internship Program faculty encourage students to pursue scholarships that are available from both The American Dietetic Association Foundation and the New York State Dietetic Association. The number and dollar amounts of these scholarships varies from year to year, but each year since 1989 one or more students from Teachers College have been honored to receive scholarships ranging from $750 to $1000 from these professional organizations. Some of these students were applying for scholarships to use toward graduate studies while others were used towards the Dietetic Internship Program.
