In 2005, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation approved the establishment of the Food & Culinary Professionals DPG Communication & Education Fund.
The fund was established to provide funding for 2 purposes:
1. Create and support lectureships, through the payment of travel & related expenses, to enable & encourage FCP members to make educational presentation on topics of food & culinary interest at various educational venues, including Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics state, affiliate, regional workshops and meetings.
2. Provide scholarship awards to support individuals with an interest in the mission of FCP in their participation in culinary learning educational experiences.
Since 2005, FCP has worked to fully "fund the fund" so that we can begin utilizing available interest.
FCP is thrilled to announce that our Academy Foundation Award is accepting applications!
This award provides funding for food educational presentations made by a dietitian or dietetic technician as well as provide funding for culinary educational enrichment for a dietitian or dietetic technician. Funds are available for dietetic professionals new to their careers, as well as those who are seasoned and wish to expand their knowledge and experiences.
Applications are due February 1, 2013.
