Scholarships

Deadline: May 1, 2019

The Functional Remedies Scholarship was established to help students pursuing a post-secondary education with the cost of tuition and other expenses. Our annual essay-based scholarship is an opportunity to support the next generation of leaders and celebrate the health & wellness professionals who have dedicated their lives to the service of others.

To apply for our scholarship, tell a story of how hemp oil has made a difference in your life or the life of someone near and dear to your heart. This person does not have to be a direct family member, but must be factually-based, and meaningful to you personally.

AWARDS

We are proud to announce that three scholarships will be awarded in 2019 as follows: two $1000 awards and one $500 award.

The winning submission will be chosen based on several factors, including succinctness, word choice, flow, and the ability to tell an engaging story. This is not a grammar competition, nor a creative writing challenge.

SCHOLARSHIP REQUIREMENTS

Maximum one submission per person. Must be a legal resident of the United States (or holding a valid student visa) studying at an accredited two or four-year program at a college in the U.S. Submission must be processed on or before May 1, 2019. Submissions processed after May 1, 2019 will apply to the 2020 scholarship.

ESSAY REQUIREMENTS

Address the topic of how hemp oil has made a difference in your life or the life of someone you know. Length must be greater than 1,000 and less than 3,000 words. Essays will be judged on story presentation, mechanics and organization. Profanity is allowed, but may be redacted if selected for publishing. Must be willing to have your essay published on our blog.

The winner will be contacted on or before July 1, 2019 by phone and/or email. Funds will be paid directly to the financial aid office of your school.
