The Eating for the Future Program focuses on improving our understanding of how food environments influence individuals’ food choices and eating behaviors.

Each CLF Predoctoral Fellowship award provides one year of support in an amount up to $60,000 to be used for tuition, stipend, or research expenses. Students are eligible for support during any stage of their doctoral program  and must be enrolled in any one of the divisions of Johns Hopkins University in a PhD, ScD, or DrPH program. The CLF Predoctoral Fellowship Program, now in its eighth year, is made possible through the generous support of an anonymous donor.
