The scholarship is directed to registered dietitians (RDs) or those intending to become an RD. In addition, applicants must

Applicants must receive counsel and direction from a sponsor who is an ASN member investigator or clinical educator.


The award will be presented at Nutrition 2019, ASN's annual scientific sessions being held June 8 to 11, 2019, in Baltimore, Maryland.

The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) presents Nutrition 2019, June 8 to 11, in Baltimore. Nutrition 2019 is the ideal annual meeting for researchers, clinicians, public health professionals, and others interested in the advancement and application of nutrition science.


Following the immensely successful inaugural Nutrition 2018 with 3600 attendees and 45 exhibitors, Nutrition 2019 will offer


* the best and latest original science selected for presentation through a comprehensive review process;


* scientific symposia and educational sessions organized by themes;


* special lectures and addresses delivered by some of the most recognized names in the field of nutrition;


* networking opportunities to build connections with scientists and practitioners from around the globe;


* new technology to help you learn and network smarter and more effectively; and

New this year, ASN is accepting clinical vignettes in addition to new, original research. A clinical vignette or case report is a means of disseminating new knowledge gained from clinical practice. It can address an unusual condition, a complication of a known disease, an unusual side effect or adverse response to a mode of treatment, or a new approach to a condition. Submit your abstracts by January 18.



Nutrition 2019's "From Research to Practice" clinical track will be held Saturday, June 8, to Sunday, June 10. This programming features reviews of hot topics in nutrition with discussions on clinical applications. Featured topics include aging and cognition, eating disorders, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, cancer treatment and survivorship, fad diets, and much more!
