NWRD strives to support continuing education for regional nutrition professionals who may need assistance to attend the NWRD Annual Conference.  Online Scholarship Application is open:  NOV 15 - DEC 31

A P P L I C A T I O N   D E T A I L S

  • Submit your online Scholarship Application during open period:   November 15 - December 31


  • Scholarship funds are limited.

  • Scholarships do not take the place of employer's reimbursement. Rather, awards are given to those who are in financial need, and who have very little or no employer support for earning CPEUs. As part of the Scholarship Application, applicants must disclose employer's reimbursement policy and allotted amounts for CPEU opportunities.

  • Scholarships are intended to help cover portions of conference related costs -- Overall attendees’ costs are significantly lower with the virtual platform compared to being in-person. However, NWRD understands there are extenuating circumstances for some families in this COVID era. If needed, you may apply for a partial scholarship. You must seek employer reimbursement first, prior to completing this scholarship application. Scholarships are not intended to cover costs of childcare, meals, etc.


  • Considerations will be made for applicant's financial need, past award history, meeting attendance plans (1-day versus 2-days), and travel needs from outside the hosting area. 

  • Eligibility Criteria: Applicant must be a practicing Registered Dietitian or Dietetic Technician who works with CKD patients:

    • within Network 16 region (OR, WA, ID, AK, and MT); or 

    • in British Columbia, Canada
