The Foundation Introduces Two New ASN Funds
Support Tomorrow’s Leaders through the
Friends of the ASN Fellows Tribute Fund 
This past year, the Society has lost several luminaries in our field. A number of ASN members have reached out to the ASN Foundation to make tribute gifts in honor of those who have passed. As a result, the ASN Foundation has launched the new Friends of the ASN Fellows Tribute Fund, established to support activities that foster the next generation of nutrition scientists.

We are excited to announce that donations to this fund will be used to provide awards and scholarships for young investigators to Nutrition 20 18. ASN members and friends of the Society are invited to make a contribution in honor of these preeminent leaders, researchers, clinicians and educators in the field of nutrition.
Matching Gifts Needed for New
ASN Foundation Nevin Scrimshaw Mid-Career Award Endowment Fund
The ASN Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Nevin Scrimshaw Mid-Career Award Endowment Fund. With the strong endorsement of the family of Dr. Scrimshaw, ASN's Global Nutrition Council (GNC) Governing Committee has named this new award after Dr. Scrimshaw to honor his extraordinary career dedicated to the alleviation of hunger and malnutrition. Dr. Scrimshaw’s work substantially improved the lives of millions of people around the globe. Through this effort, the ASN Foundation and the GNC aim to annually pay tribute to Dr. Scrimshaw’s invaluable contributions while recognizing those who are following in his footsteps.

The ASN Foundation is initiating a fundraising campaign to raise the $100,000 needed to create an endowment for the Nevin Scrimshaw Mid-Career Award so that it can be bestowed in perpetuity. The Sight and Life Foundation has generously committed $50,000 over five years to this Fund. We are seeking to match their support from ASN members and friends of the Society. Please consider making a contribution to help honor Dr. Scrimshaw.

The inaugural Nevin Scrimshaw Mid-Career Award will be awarded at Nutrition 20 18. Nominations are currently being accepted through the ASN Foundation Awards Portal through October 31, 2017.
