Financial Help for Students Desiring Health & Wellness Related Careers is proud to announce our annual Health & Wellness Scholarship Program for hard-working students. This $500 scholarship award will go to one deserving post-secondary (university or community college) student who desires a career that emphasizes a healthier living lifestyle.

healthy lifestyle includes exercise regularly, eat healthy, reduce stress, drink plenty of water

Being Well is Normal

Dis-ease and disease are NOT normal. Why then are so many of us tired, overweight and sick? We believe this is largely a result of what we are putting into our bodies and our minds and can be practically addressed by making better lifestyle choices.

We want our scholarship award to go to a student who demonstrates an aptitude for helping others achieve a Wellness lifestyle.

Congratulations to the 2020 Scholarship recipient Christopher D'Andrea for his winning essay A Better Way where he shares his personal wellness journey of overcoming significant health challenges through healthy lifestyle choices including a plant-based diet.
