Financial Assistance

Dietetic interns may obtain a graduate assistantship or traineeship during the time they were completing their MS graduate degree. Assistantships in teaching or research average 10 hours per week. They provide tuition, a stipend and valuable work experience. The DI experience is full-time. Assistantships are unlikely during the 30 week internship. However, some students have remained on a research assistantship during the DI, working 10 hours in the evening or weekends. Public Health Nutrition Traineeships provide tuition and a stipend for four semesters.

The Department of Nutrition application provides a section to complete if interested in a department assistantship.  Priority is given to PhD students and MS students completing a thesis.
