In recognition of their ties to Pacific and deep commitment to the Central Valley, Gregory and Jessica Coleman '99 have established the first endowed scholarship for the Clinical Nutrition program. Students from Stanislaus County who intend to complete their clinical rotations in the Central Valley, as well as conduct research at the Children's Garden, are eligible. Recipients must also achieve a minimum 3.0 GPA and demonstrate financial need.
University of the Pacific's Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition (MSCN) is an accelerated 16-month full-time program. It's considered a Future Graduate (FG) Future Education Model (FEM) -- the only one of its kind in California and the entire west coast.
Students receive both the educational and supervised practice requirements for becoming an RDN in a single program. Our graduates then go on to become a competitive, well-prepared practitioner for the nutrition and dietetics workforce.
Scholarships make a significant difference in recruiting and retaining deserving students. Financial support enables them to remain focused on their path to graduation.
Your gift today will greatly assist future Clinical Nutrition students and be matched, dollar-for-dollar, by the university's Powell Match Program.
If you are interested in setting up a multi-year pledge to support this fund, please contact Scott Biedermann. To learn more about the Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition program, click here.
