GOAL

The goal of the Joanne Ikeda Memorial Student Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a student to attend the SNEB Annual Conference. Joanne Ikeda was an internationally known nutritionist and former SNEB president who passed away in November of 2018. Joanne played a huge role in the development of a new approach to weight management, Health at Every Size® (HAES), which is built on the following five principles: 

· Weight Inclusivity: Accept and respect the inherent diversity of body shapes and sizes and reject the idealizing or pathologizing of specific weights. 

· Health Enhancement: Support health policies that improve and equalize access to information and services, and personal practices that improve human well-being, including attention to individual physical, economic, social, spiritual, emotional, and other needs. 

· Respectful Care: Acknowledge our biases, and work to end weight discrimination, weight stigma, and weight bias. Provide information and services from an understanding that socio-economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other identities impact weight stigma, and support environments that address these inequities.

· Eating for Well-being: Promote flexible, individualized eating based on hunger, satiety, nutritional needs, and pleasure, rather than any externally regulated eating plan focused on weight control.

· Life-Enhancing Movement: Support physical activities that allow people of all sizes, abilities, and interests to engage in enjoyable movement, to the degree that they choose.


To be eligible for consideration for this scholarship the applicant must be a Student Member of SNEB. 

Student Members are: Individuals who are registered as full-time students or are actively working on a degree at an accredited college or university or are enrolled in a dietetic intern program. Student status must be verified by having a faculty member sign the membership application. Non-members can join at https://www.sneb.org/become-a-member-of-sneb/ 


All essays will be rated based on the quality of response to the following two questions. The student’s ability to express ideas well and convey information clearly and concisely will also be considered. (500 word max)

· How is your research or work promoting the HAES principles? (This can be expressed by describing work you are already doing or work you are interested in pursuing in the future.)

· How will exposure to conference sessions help you advance your nutrition education career goals?

Resolutions provide a route for members to propose that SNEB adopt a position, take an action, or endorse a policy or principles in a formal manner.  The SNEB Bylaws (2.4) state that:  Members of the corporation may initiate and submit for a vote by the membership resolutions regarding matters on which the members advocate that the corporation take a position or action or advocate that the corporation establish a policy.

An individual, group of SNEB members, SNEB Division or SNEB committee may submit a resolution for consideration by the membership. SNEB members serving on the Board of Directors or who are a Board Member-Elect will not be eligible to author, or be a signatory on, any resolutions during their terms in office.   

Drafters are encouraged to prepare concise, well-organized resolutions.  See examples of previous resolutions online. To make a resolution readable and easy to understand, authors may not wish to include every rationale or fact that supports the proposed motion.  Authors are welcome to provide longer statements during the comment process, especially if the topic is complex, to help assure that members can make a well-informed judgment about the resolution.
