There is no financial aid provided by the Priority Nutrition Care Distance Dietetic Internship Program. Dietetic Interns in our program are not eligible for federal student financial assistance programs administered through the United States Department of Education.
The Program will provide any Intern who requests one a letter stating that the Dietetic Internship leads to eligibility to take the Registration Examination for Dietitians/Nutritionists. Some lenders MAY allow Interns to submit this letter to apply to have their education loan payments deferred. Some lenders allow this, some do not. Personal loans may be available at your local bank.
