Research Support Award
Share |

The Wisconsin Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Board of Directors and Research Focus Group are inviting applications for a Research Support Award.  The goal of this award is to support research to evaluate the effectiveness of work carried out by dietetics or nutrition professionals and to recognize an individual or group who contributes to evidence based practice by conducting and sharing results of their research.  Proposed research may include clinical, community, foodservice or other practice areas.

A total of up to $10,000 is available, to partially or completely fund nutrition related research of one or two applicants. Applications are to be submitted electronically by February 1, 2018.  Award(s) will be announced by April 13, 2018.  Recipient(s) will be required to present their research (oral or poster presentation) at the WAND Annual Conference in spring of 2019. Extension is possible if a longer research time frame is needed; annual update is required if an extension is approved by the committee.

Applicants interested in seeking partnerships in research are encouraged to reach out to WAND for support.  If you require assistance or have questions regarding the Institutional Review Board (IRB)* process, please contact Deborah Tang.
