About the HealthGAINS Entrepreneurial Scholarship
The founders of HealthGAINS believe deeply in the power of entrepreneurship. The value that comes from a true entrepreneur far exceeds that person’s own financial health. Rather, entrepreneurship builds and improves our entire economy.
A country nourished by entrepreneurship benefits from improved efficiencies, new products and innovations, and the critical ability to respond to changes in technology, prices, and consumer preferences. Entrepreneurs open new markets and redefine the rules of industries, that perhaps have plateaued, by doing things the same way they have always been done.
Whether entrepreneurs are motivated by profit, independence, or a passion to fill a void in the present market—and whether they plan to sell their business or grow and develop them—the fruits of their efforts are well worth encouraging.
With this knowledge in mind, HealthGAINS has developed its first annual $2,500 Entrepreneurial Scholarship.
Students We Encourage to Apply
We look forward to breathing in the spirit of entrepreneurialism that lives in today’s college-bound students. We know that entrepreneurs come from all walks of life, and we are eager to receive applications from a diverse set of students.
You can be a high school student who has been accepted to a college or a college senior who is already thinking about your next phase of life in the “working world.” If you have an idea and a plan for making it happen, we want to hear from you.
If you meet the eligibility criteria list below, we encourage you to apply for our Entrepreneurial Scholarship.
