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 or for tuition. Eligible applicants are interested in exploring the gut microbiome, probiotics and yogurt to better understand how they help support and maintain human health and wellness.

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 intent of the grant is not for disease treatment or clinical management; those addressing health and wellness will be prioritized.
