Do you have a passion for health and wellness? Are you one of the hundreds of thousands of students across North America struggling to afford tuition, school supplies, and books?
Well, AlgaeCal would love a chance to help you out. Thanks to our 2018 AlgaeCal Health Scholarship, we’re offering the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship to interested applicants enrolled at a college/university in the 2018–19 school year, or who are enrolling in the upcoming semester.
Born of a desire to financially assist students in pursuit of higher education, the AlgaeCal Scholarship is designed to offset the challenge of significantly rising costs of obtaining a college degree.
It also stemmed from the need for greater focus on the critical issue of health and wellbeing. With two-thirds of the US reported to be overweight — half of whom are classified as obese — more dialogue and solutions are obviously still needed to manage and correct this rising health crisis.
Interested applicants are encouraged to download and fill out an AlgaeCal Health Scholarship Application Form and write an essay up to 750 words answering the question: If you had the power to change or create a policy or program geared towards general health and wellbeing in your country, what change would you make?
The deadline is June 30, 2018, and applications must include a completed form and essay.Eligibility
