Jan. 6 - Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center Scholarship
Deadline: Friday, Jan 6, 2017

Amount:

$1000

Description:

We at the Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center are very excited to be offering an educational scholarship opportunity for your current and future students. We have launched the Spread the Word on Safety Scholarship that will be awarded once every year. As a Chiropractic office, we have witnessed the repercussions of car accidents that occur on a daily basis.  Unfortunately, the majority of car accidents occur more often in college students.   In a staggering study by NHTSA, drivers in their 20s make up 27 percent of the distracted drivers in fatal crashes. Though college students aren’t’ the only ones involved in car accidents, we find it’s important to Spread the Word on Safety and hopefully inspire them to make the right choices when getting behind the wheel.

The scholarship will be awarded to one dedicated student, either current or graduating high school senior, with acceptance to an accredited school or currently enrolled in an undergraduate college degree.  At Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center, P.C., we value the importance of safety and the prevention of auto injury.  We feel that sponsoring a $1000 scholarship is a great way to help assist with the tuition and expenses, and to help give back to the community.

We would also like to put the scholarship in your control of the qualifying candidates. That is why selection of the winner will be judged not on the subjective opinions of a small panel but on the impact that your message connects with people and enriches their lives. Once the student’s application and essay is submitted, within 24-48 hours, their message will go live on our site and their essay link will arrive by email for them to share socially. Candidates whose essay reaches the highest amount of social shares will be selected as the winner; so start spreading the word on safety as soon as possible. 

Applicant Essay Topics:

The effects of driving while intoxicated, tired or hung-over.

The costs of a DWI and DUI on your finances and your future success.

What happens to the human body during an auto accident?
