The “Save a Life” Scholarship
- Any student currently enrolled in, or applying to enroll within the next academic year, in a degree program in the fields of healthcare or education, at an accredited U.S. university, is eligible to apply.
- You must provide your school GPA.
- You must be at least 18 years old.
- We take a broad view of what counts as a “healthcare field,” and that can include students pursuing mental health degrees or occupations, as well as administrative and non-profit programs. Applicants will have the opportunity to make their case for why their chosen field of study can be classified as healthcare or education-focused as part of their essay.
- If you aren’t selected, that doesn’t mean we aren’t interested in your story — we still want to hear from you! Unsuccessful applicants may re-apply in subsequent scholarship rounds. Scholarships will only be awarded one time to each winner. Past winners are not eligible to apply again.
- Please do not send emails asking if your essay was received. Unless you receive a failure to deliver message, then we have received your submission.
- Please read the full submission instructions before contacting us with questions related to the scholarship. If you need further assistance, please contact email@example.com
- Applicants will not be notified if they were not selected. Please do not email us asking if or when a winner has been selected. Winners are selected approximately 30 days after each scholarship deadline.
- Scholarship winner will need to submit a photo copy of government issued state identification card or driver license.
How to Apply:
- Write a scholarship essay of between 750 and 1,000 words, explaining your career aspirations, how you plan to advance healthcare and/or education through your work, and what inspired you to commit yourself to this field. Your scholarship essay can be attached as a Word file, or linked as a Google Doc.
Further submission guidelines can be found on the scholarship’s website.
