Scholarship

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.

Update: The 2018 Scholarship Campaign is now closed! Thank you to all those who applied. The winner will be notified by email by the end of September 2018. 

Eligibility

Applicants must be:

  • Currently attending a post secondary institute in the United States or Canada
  • Carrying a minimum 3.00 GPA

How to submit

All applications should be sent to [email protected]

Decisions

Decisions will be made by the end of September 2018. The recipient will be notified by email.

Garry AlgaeCal

Hi Natalie,

You don’t need to submit proof of your GPA at the application stage. If an applicant is shortlisted, they will be contacted for proof of their 3.0 GPA at that time.

Best of luck!

I’m not really understanding how you’re supposed to apply. Am I supposed to fill out and e-mail the downloadable form AND fill out the boxes on this webpage? Also, should I e-mail you my transcript as proof of my GPA?

Garry AlgaeCal
Garry AlgaeCal

Hi Lucy,

It’s not necessary to fill out and email the downloadable form and fill out the form embedded on the webpage. You only need to do one of these options.

As for proof of your GPA, you don’t need to submit proof of your GPA at the application stage. If an applicant is shortlisted, they will be contacted for proof of their 3.0 GPA at that time.

Hope this helps and best of luck!

Hello, thank you for offering this scholarship. I found it on collegeboard.org; I am currently enrolled in two schools part-time to which makes me a full time student. However, is it necessary for me to be full-time at one school to qualify?

Monica AlgaeCal
Monica AlgaeCal

Hi JaVonne,

Great question. Our eligibility requirements are as follows:
– Currently attending a post secondary institute in the United States or Canada
– Carrying a minimum 3.00 GPA

So if you have the above, you qualify. We don’t have a requirement that you need to be enrolled in one school full-time 🙂
