Scholarship – Fitness
FitRated.com’s Strong Mind and Body Scholarship
We’re awarding 1 scholarship valued at $2,000!
New Winner Every Year
Every year, we award $2,000 to the winning participant!
Fit Rated is pleased to announce our first annual Strong Mind and Body Scholarship. We make it our goal to increase awareness of how to stay physically fit, but we don’t want you to overlook keeping a very important muscle well exercised… your brain.
A Pew Research Study revealed a bachelor’s degree will earn you an average of an extra $17,500 per year over a someone with a just a highschool diploma. Among recent college grads polled, 91% reported their degree has already paid off in their professional life.
It’s hard work, and it’s not cheap. That’s why we want to help offset some of the costs of your studies while increasing awareness of the importance of fitness.
Winners of the Strong Mind and Body Scholarship will be awarded $2,000 toward their university or college fees. The scholarship is awarded annually and open to all students in North America who meet the eligibility criteria. Canadian winners will be awarded the equivalent of $2,000 USD.
