The Minnesota Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation operates exclusively for the purpose of administering the MAND President’s Leadership Scholarship. The board members of the Minnesota Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation are also members of MAND and are often past MAND Presidents. This board evaluates and scores scholarship applications and helps with the selection process.
The Foundation currently gives one or two scholarships per year. Tax deductible donations may be made in honor of a special person in your life, as a memorial, or just because you wish to assist dietetic students.
