Why a 100 Word Essay?

We understand that applying to essay based scholarships can be a considerable time sink. And if you are applying to multiple scholarships, the commitment required can get out of hand quickly.

However, a simple drawing is a little unfair, and we would simply receive too many applications to make it worth your time. We want to give as many healthcare students this opportunity as possible.

The scholarship disbursement amount is $500 x 4, for a total of $2000. Four unique winners will be selected yearly to receive a one-time payment of $500.
