Dietetic Internship

The Dietetic Internship program at Illinois State University is a 21-month experience offered in conjunction with a Master of Science degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. The program is designed to provide the opportunity to develop skills in the areas of clinical nutrition therapy, community nutrition, and food service management with a concentration in Leadership & Project Management.

Our program uses the on-line centralized internship application, Dietetic Internship Centralized Application Services (DICAS).


All students in our program benefit from:

  • Graduate assistantships - Assistantships pay for tuition for the first three semesters of your couse of study and provide a stipend for the first two semesters totaling $3825. ALL students accepted into the program who meet basic eligibility requirements will receive an assistantship.
  • A low student to teacher ratio [4:1] in the graduate program and a low intern to preceptor ratio [1:1] in the internship.
  • Tuition waivers for the second year of the program are periodically awarded based on merit.
  • Opportunities to develop management skills while creating activities and promotional items for National Nutrition Month in local school districts.

An on-campus visit is always encouraged. Please feel free to contact Dr. Schumacher to arrange a time to meet with you and discuss the exciting opportunities at Illinois State!
