Danone North America welcomes applications for its Gut Microbiome, Yogurt, and Probiotics Fellowship Grants.
Through the program, two grants of $25,000 will be awarded to graduate student researchers interested in exploring the gut microbiome, probiotics, and yogurt and how they help support and maintain human health and wellness.
Topics may include the role that probiotics or yogurt play on brain function, growth and development, digestive health, weight management or heart health; and factors such as foods or nutrients that influence the gut microbiome.
The grant is not designed for the investigation of disease treatment or clinical management and should focus on health and wellness, long-term health and longevity, growth and development, and/or performance.
To be eligible, applicants must be an incoming current and full-time enrolled graduate student who is at least 18 years of age and a citizen or permanent resident of the United States who is studying during the 2019-20 academic year at an accredited institution in the U.S.
See the Danone North America website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
