FNCE Grants

DBC’s FNCE Grants provide financial support for active or student members to attend The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE).

Total number of grants and awarded amount may vary each year. In 2023, 7 grants were awarded for in-person attendance (4 active $250/ 3 student $155) and 4 grants were awarded for virtual attendance (2 active $89/ 2 student $50). 

This grant application generally opens in September of each year, with volunteers from the DBC leadership team evaluating and selecting the awardees through a blinded review process. Check back here or stay tuned to the latest info in DBC’s monthly Take 5 Newsletter.
