Dannon, as part of DanoneWave Public Benefit Corporation, is once again awarding two $25,000 grants to graduate students who show strong interest and potential in exploring the gut microbiome, probiotics and/or yogurt. The Dannon Fellowship Grant was established in 2012 to help further study of these vastly diverse areas on human health.
For students who are studying topics including the gut microbiome’s impact on human health and well-being and/or the nutritional and functional benefits of yogurt and probiotics, this is an exciting opportunity to not only receive educational support, but to connect with a leader in the field. Besides the $25,000 award, Dannon Fellows are connected to each other through this scholarship – encouraging collaboration, communication and future opportunity in the field.
Thus far, the Dannon grant has provided support for research on probiotic yogurt during lactation, the use of foods as a delivery vector for beneficial bacteria, technology for studying the adaptation of fermentative microbes to milk, the effects of protein fermentation on the human microbiota and digestive health, and the relationship between probiotics, the gut microbiome and brain function.
Dannon will be accepting applications from graduate students until February 15, 2018. For additional information, qualification requirements and to complete the online application, please click here: http://www.DanoneWave.com/fellowship-application/.
Dannon looks forward to reviewing applications and supporting the next generation of cutting-edge research!
