Grant Description
Fellowships of $25,000 to USA graduate students for research related to health and wellness. Eligible topics include growth and development, performance, and longevity. Funding may be used for research-related projects, tuition, and other activities that assist in exploring the gut microbiome, probiotics, and yogurt.

Since its inception, the Danone North America Fellowship Grant has enabled up-and-coming scientists to make strides in the interdisciplinary fields of biology, health sciences, nutrition, microbiome, yogurt, and probiotics. 

Candidates are encouraged to submit an application for their investigation or study of the gut microbiome, probiotics and yogurt as related to human health. The grant should focus on health and wellness, long-term health and longevity, growth and development, or performance. Such 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.
