Scholarship Description

Start Date:
First prize: $3,000
Second prize: $1,000 (awarded to 3 students)
About the Scholarship Program:

The Research Leadership Scholarship Program was created in hopes that it may encourage students in various health fields to work toward a future in which obesity and its related problems can be controlled. It should be noted that some of the newer diet supplements out there do a good job in addressing weight management, but consumer products only address a part of the issue.

Our Focus is the Support of Great Education

Our dietary health is one of our base cardinal needs as people. We aim to provide the support the next generation needs to make it easier to change lives.
