Black Note $2000 Smoke-Free World Scholarship (ID 2663)

Scholarship Description

Start Date:
From really bad breath to even worse health woes, smoking traditional cigarettes can be one nasty habit. But it’s not a habit that’s easy to break. That’s where you come in.

Black Note is looking to award a $2,000 scholarship to each student that shares innovative, ingenious or just plain good ideas on ways to help smokers put down cigarettes and join the world’s smoke-free movement.

We’re doing our part with a mission of helping to create a smoke-free world by providing the most authentic and enjoyable alternative to smoking. Your own smoke-free world idea can certainly include the mention of vaping and e-cigarettes, but it doesn’t have to. Feel free to engage your brain in some creative thinking that goes far outside the (cigarette) box.

To be eligible for a scholarship opportunity, you must meet the lineup of requirements, complete an online application, and submit an essay discussing your smoke-free world ideas.
