Christine Gagnon Memorial Travel Award

Christine Gagnon Memorial Travel Award / Nestlé Nutrition Graduate Student Award – Finalist

The Christine Gagnon Memorial Travel Award will be given for excellence in nutritional sciences research and reporting.  Only full time graduate students specializing in some aspect of nutrition are eligible, and both the student and his/her supervisor/sponsor must be members in good standing of the CNS in the year in which s/he is nominated.  Students may not have won a national or international competition in the past, and must not submit the same work for another major competition.

Trainees must indicate if they would like their abstract to be considered for the Nutrition Graduate Student and Trainee Award (supported by Nestlé) and/or the CNS Poster Competition at the time of the abstract submission. They will present their work either as an oral presentation or poster presentation at the annual conference.

A committee, appointed by the President and Awards Chair, will make the selection for the recipient of the Christine Gagnon Memorial Travel Award / Nestlé Nutrition Graduate Student Award.

The Award is presented at the CNS-SCN Annual Conference.
