Nutritionist and Dietitian Financial Aid

Federal Financial Aid Information

Federal financial aid or tuition assistance programs are a popular and intelligent way to fund your nutrition education or Nutritionist or Dietitian career training. Available in three types, federal student aid will come in the form of either:

  1. Grants
  2. Work-study programs
  3. Loans

Applicants must all fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application, available online and due by the spring before you start school, will provide a Student Aid Report (SAR) and individuals financial aid eligibility rating. All FAFSA forms must be submitted to each school where you plan to study. When looking at different nutrition, public health or related degrees, it is important to note the cost and availability of funds for that degree.

Grant Information

Federal or private education grants for nutrition degrees and training programs are money given to students of the nutrition sciences or related programs, or the college or university where they are studying to pay for the tuition or training and any associated expenses of that program. Given on the basis of financial need, grants are not required to be paid back like a loan. Focused primarily on undergraduate students, grants include the following:

  • Pell Grants: Can be worth up to $4,310 USD annually (this number is expected to grow to above $5,000 per year by 2012.
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) are worth as much as $4,000 per year.
  • State Grants are also available, depending on where you study. Check with your local and state government websites for information.

Federal Work-Study Program

The Federal Work-Study program, offered at most colleges and universities across the country, allows the federal sponsorship of students who wish to work part-time for the college or university that they are attending. Many accredited institutions offering nutrition related degrees have this program available on their campuses nationwide. Earning roughly $2,000 per school year, the money students receive through this program goes toward the cost of their tuition and fees.

Nutrition Scholarships

Educational Scholarships, ranging from small sums of money up to the full cost of tuition and more, are based on financial need, academic merit, professional goals or any variety of additional criteria set by thousands of Nutrition, Dietetic, Public Health or other organizations across North America providing theses scholarships. Requirements are vast, including minimum academic requirements, intended major field of study, heritage, or group membership, past experience, and much more. Educational institutions, state and local governments, private companies, social groups, and individuals within the nutrition and healthcare industries and communities provide these scholarships at different times throughout each school year.

Although there are no federally awarded scholarships based on academic merit, most full tuition scholarships are awarded to students by the college or university for which they attend. Check with the schools provided on this website for information regarding scholarships for their institutions. Additionally, there are literally hundreds of links to information about Nutrition and Dietetic associations and groups across North America from which to find a vast amount of information about scholarships in the nutrition fields.

Student Education Loans

Many public and private institutions including banks, financial institutions, non-profit and government organizations provide low- and medium-interest loans to students and their families. Federal and state governments also provide other various types of student loans. These are based primarily on student and family financial need. This information is important and should be provided to an applicant’s loan institution with a significant amount of time for processing before the loan payment is needed.

Federal loans are typically distributed through the institution where the student is enrolled. This is not necessary, however. Students may receive this money from the federal government, non-profit lending institution, private lender, or bank directly as well. Only the institution, according to the rules of that program, can distribute Perkins loans. Additionally, applicants should request information from the Department of Education regarding loans such as the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program, the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) program and others with specific guidelines.

Federal Perkins loans and Direct and FFEL-subsidized Stafford loans

This section briefly discusses the Federal Perkins loans and both Direct and FFEL-subsidized Stafford loans. With no minimum amount, Perkins loans are capped at $4,000 per year but increase to $6,000 a year by 2012. Graduate students are not eligible.

Subsidized Stafford loans, on the other hand, can increase as students move up from undergraduate to graduate or professional education status. All students should check with the Department of Education’s website for up to date interest rate information and eligibility. Those with Perkins or Stafford loans are not required to begin repaying their loans for up to nine months after graduation. With Stafford loans, including PLUS and Perkins loans, students have 10 years to repay Perkins loans and from 10 to 30 years for unsubsidized Stafford loans.

Employer Tuition Support Programs

All students and applicants are also encouraged to check with their employers about the tuition assistance programs as part of their employee benefits package. Eligibility requirements vary, so students should check with their state department of education, employer and college or university.

Military GI Bill

Those in the United States Armed Forces are eligible for various tuition assistance and loan repayment programs designed especially for our military personnel. There is a Handbook with information for all military personnel called "Job Opportunities in the Armed Forces". for more information please also go to the US Government’s Military websites.
