AlgaeCal Health Scholarship

AlgaeCal scholarship best plant based calcium sources
Update: The 2020 AlgaeCal Health Scholarship is now closed. Thank you for taking part! The winner will be announced by the end of September.

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 is the inspiration for our scholarship application question: 

β€œIf 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.

Eligibility

Applicants must be:

  • Enrolled at a post-secondary institute for the upcoming semester in the United States or Canada
  • Carrying a minimum 3.00 GPA

Decisions

Decisions will be made by the end of September 2020. The recipient will be notified by email. Congrats to 2019’s winner Jonathan Cline!

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.

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.

Below is my introduction and if you do not see my submission, please kindly email me back and I’ll be more than happy to send you my entire application. I understand that the deadline is quickly approaching and I thank you for taking me into consideration.

A healthy population equals more productivity in the labor force for any country, yet our individual lifestyles hint otherwise – from medication noncompliance (about 50% of all patients do not take their medications as prescribed according to ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) to the lack of physical activities and poor diets (less than 5% of US adults achieve more than 30 minutes of physical activity a day and over 30% of Americans are obese according to hhs.gov). Hence, if I were to create a program geared towards general health and well-being in my country, I would create a program that would encourage individuals to stick to their medication, maintain a healthier lifestyle and ultimately be more productive.

Kind Regards,

Carmen
