Annual 1K Nutritionist student scholarship
At Being Healthfull, we want to encourage undergraduate students who want to pursue holistic nutrition education as registered dietitians and nutritionists. We also understand that higher education is an increasingly expensive cost, with students struggling to get capped financial aid and make ends meet during school. Between tuition, books, school supplies, and general costs as a student, the cost of education to become a nutritionists can amount to 5 digit costs. In an effort to contribute to the education of future nutritionists and dietitians, we at Being Healthfull are pleased to offer an annual $1,000 scholarship to individuals who are currently attending 4 year college in the United States and have declared a nutrition or science major or are planning to in the near future.
