Each year the Louisiana Dietetic Association sponsors merit scholarships for undergraduate, graduate and technician students in dietetics. These scholarships are presented to recognize outstanding students and are intended to aid and encourage students to pursue a career in dietetics. The scholarship recipients will be invited to attend the LDA Annual Business Meeting at the 2015 Food & Nutrition Conference & Exposition in March in Lafayette, LA.
Applications for Louisiana Dietetic Association Scholarship Awards are sent to all colleges and universities in Louisiana that offer programs in Nutrition/Dietetics. A memo and the scholarship packet are sent to all Directors of Didactic Programs in Dietetics and all District Presidents. These individuals are responsible for distribution of the applications.
To be eligible for these awards, the individual must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program in Nutrition/Dietetics in the state of Louisiana.
The Scholarship Committee of the LDA hereby requests applications for its merit scholarships. The deadline for all applications is February 1, 2015. All applications must be postmarked on or before this date to be considered. Please follow application guidelines in each category. Only complete applications will be evaluated.
Application information (application and personal letter), transcript and letters of recommendation should be mailed by your faculty advisor and sent to the LDA Executive Director postmarked by February 1, 2015. The Executive Director will code the application numerically and remove all biographical data. The blinded applications will be sent to the LDA Scholarship Chair for selection of the recipients by the Scholarship Committee.
