Are you planning on enrolling, or are currently enrolled in a health science program? How would you like an extra $2,000 towards your goal of becoming a healthcare professional?
HealthTrends.com offers $2,000 in scholarship awards each year - 1 $1,000 scholarship each June and 1 $1,000 scholarship each December. This is open to aspiring health science and nutrition students.
Our normal 500-word essay submission process has been expanded to allow “video essays” as well. This means you can submit a 500-word essay or a 2-3 minute video to YouTube or Vimeo explaining why you want to become a healthcare professional.
How to apply:
We have made the application process simple:
1) Click here to go to our application form and fill out your info
2) Submit your essay one of two ways: upload your video on YouTube or Vimeo and submit the video URL or page the video is located on, or write your essay directly in the application form
We do not give more weight to video or essay submission. Choose your own method.
Don't forget to fill out your name and email address. If you don't provide your contact information, or provide incorrect contact information or we cannot reach you, your scholarship will be forfeited and we will choose another winner.
We made the essay topic relatively straightforward:
Why do you want to become a healthcare professional?
In 500 words or less (or a 2-5 minute video), explain how you came to the decision to start a career in the health sciences.
All winning applicants will be screened prior to funds disbursement. The following requirements will be considered for our essay/video scholarship contest are as follows:
Currently enrolled in college or in their senior year of high school.
All applicants must be 18 years of age or older.
All applicants must be a U.S. citizen.
