Danone North America is awarding two graduate students a grant of $25,000 each. Successful candidates should excel in science and have an interest in studying the gut microbiome, probiotics, and yogurt in human health and wellness (the “Field”). Applicants are encouraged to submit a proposal for a study that explores measures of human health and wellness. The grant is not designed for the investigation of disease treatment or clinical management and should focus on wellness, long-term health and longevity, growth and development, or performance. Topics may include the role that gut health, probiotics, or yogurt has on brain function, growth and development, digestive health, weight management or heart health, or factors (such as foods or nutrients) that influence the gut microbiome. 

The Danone North America Graduate Fellowship award may be applied toward tuition, research-related projects, or as otherwise allocated at Danone’s sole discretion. It will be payable directly to the student’s educational institution to support their continued education on related topics during 2019.
