The foundation will expand resources, drive interest in nutrition science careers, support early-career scientists and increase the skills, infrastructure, and resources of investigators and institutions worldwide. ASNF offers predoctoral fellowships and other forms of researcher support, including travel awards. Programs to enhance scientists’ publishing potential and other skills have been implemented in countries such as China.
In 2014, our priorities include expanding scholarships, including opportunities to support undergraduates. Mentorship programs, international professorships and visiting faculty fellows, and technical assistance for infrastructure and capacity building globally are also in the ASNF vision.
