Washington State Academy - Academy Foundation Award
This award was established in 2008 by the Washington State Academy. The purpose was to provide funding for professional educational enrichment for a registered dietitian nutritionist or a nutrition and dietetic technician, registered. Funds were available for dietetic professionals new to their careers, as well as those who are seasoned and wish to expand their knowledge and experiences.
In early spring 2021, the Board approved a change to the award criteria and is working with the Academy Foundation add student scholarships to this award. The revised award was approved by the Academy Foundation in December 2022.
The application period for the education funding is open now until February 1, 2022.
