Connecting the educational world to your classroom

Food for Thought


The food choices you make could help you earn a college scholarship, as reported in the U.S. News and World Report.

Each year, the Vegetarian Resource Group offers one $10,000 and two $5,000 scholarships to graduating U.S. high school students who promote vegetarianism in their schools or communities. Interested students are required to submit an application and essay before February 20, 2018.

Other scholarships are available based on eating challenges and illnesses. For example, the Diabetes Scholars Foundation awards several scholarships to high school seniors who have Type 1 diabetes. Additional organizations offer scholarships to students with food allergies, Crohn’s Disease and more.
