2020 AlgaeCal Health Scholarship Winner

Congratulations to Anne Kluthe, the winner of our 2020 health scholarship. We loved Anne’s thoughtful essay on her idea to improve the quality and efficiency of food bank donations. Great work Anne! And all the best in your studies 🙂

Here’s what Anne had to say about winning the schoalrship:

What is the AlgaeCal Health Scholarship?

We offer a $1000 scholarship to students enrolled at a college or university because we know that the rising cost of tuition and school supplies is a challenge for a lot of students, and we’d like to help out!

We’d also like to discuss a critical issue in our society: health. As a natural health company, the well-being of folks everywhere is our primary concern. And we believe that one of the first steps toward better health is open discussion!  

This belief was the inspiration for our scholarship application question this year: 

“If you had the power to change or create a policy or program geared towards general health and well-being in your country, what change would you make?”

We encouraged interested applicants to answer this question in an essay of up to 750 words.

The deadline to apply was June 30th, 2020. To be eligible, you must have submitted a completed form and essay by midnight on this date.

    Thank you AlgaeCal for giving college students this wonderful opportunity! Winning this scholarship would be so helpful and meaningful to a student during this difficult time when many were affected by the pandemic (but still have to keep paying tuition and working towards their goals). It would also give a lot of motivation to keep achieving. I actually usually don’t enjoy writing essays, but this time was different. As a nursing major, the topic of healthcare-related change is so interesting and important to me so I really enjoyed sharing my thoughts on changes that need to be made and I had a lot to say. I just submitted my application, thank you in advance for your consideration.

    It is so sad that this scholarship is awarded only to students enrolled in institutions in Canada or the USA. I would’ve written a great essay as I am very much interested in health issues as I suffered for more than 8 years from physical and mental health issues that were not taken seriously by my country and my educational system leaving me in a very critical financial situation to finish my undergraduate degree. I believe this scholarship should cover more countries with more students in vulnerable situations and maybe great ideas to change their home countries policies.
    Anyway, I just felt like leaving this here maybe someone would read and relate or act or whatever.

    Hi, I am an a Kenyan student who got an admission to study in the UK recently but lack the funds to make this possible. I come from a financially struggling family which has done its best to make me reach where I am today.
