The Division of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Illinois is proud to announce the recent creation and endowment of the Mary Frances Picciano Graduate Scholarship.

The Division of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Illinois is proud to announce the recent creation and endowment of the Mary Frances Picciano Graduate Scholarship. This scholarship was created by a former student to show appreciation for the impact Mary Frances made on shaping her professional career path.

“As a mentor, Dr. Picciano had a valuable impact on my career as a nutritional scientist. She was always teaching her research group the importance of the scientific process in the laboratory and the keys to successful grant writing and publishing of our research findings. Most importantly, she was supportive of her students in all aspects of our lives and modeled an effective balance of work and family life.”

– Anne Smith (PhD 1986)
