Why the SOH Scholarship?

The SOH Scholarship was formed to ensure that no college student would be left behind due to inability to meet the financial obligations of a college/university.  Although we cannot fund every single college attendee, we are going to try our hardest in order reach that goal, and when I say “we,” yes I am including you.

“When your ‘WHY’ is big enough, you will find your ‘HOW.’”

MigVapor Scholarship

November 28, 2016 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

Are you passionate about making this world tobacco-free? If yes, here’s the good news for you: MigVapor awards $3,000 in scholarships every year to the students who are committed to playing their part in preventing the deaths caused by smoking tobacco. Our vision is to create a tobacco-free world and stop more than 480,000 yearly deaths caused by smoking.

MigVapor Scholarship Information

MigVapor offers scholarship awards for the students who present their well-researched and evidence-based essay to encourage smokers to kick their addiction. Remember, smoking not only impacts the smoker, but also other people around them.

Problem Statement

Tobacco is unarguably the biggest avoidable cause of death in the world. In the U.S. alone, more than 40 million people smoke tobacco cigarettes – that’s almost 17% of the total population. According to World Health Organization, about 50% of tobacco users die because of a disease caused by smoking. Every smoker realizes the harms of tobacco, yet it’s extremely hard to quit it – some experts believe it’s even more addictive than heroin and cocaine. Researches show that only 4% of the people succeed in quitting tobacco smoking when they don’t use any medicinal aid. Moreover, about two-thirds of smokers who do quit for a while, eventually take up smoking again.

We want to raise awareness of the potential dangers of smoking tobacco cigarettes. We encourage students to come up with a viable solution to help the smokers make a positive change in their lives. Your write-up has to show the people, who want to quit, a way out. You may also talk about e-cigarettes and vaporizers, and whether they can be a good choice in tobacco harm-reduction.

Scholarship Awards

The winning candidates for the first, second and third places will receive scholarships in the amounts of $1,900, $700 and $400, respectively. Each winner of this essay contest will be awarded a check and these funds may only be used to cover the educational expenses.

Application Deadlines

► November 1st, 2016 for the Spring 2017 semester

► May 31st, 2017 for the Fall 2017 semester

Who Can Participate

► This scholarship is offered nationwide to United States citizens.

► To apply, you must be a full-time student at an accredited four-year or two-year university, community college or junior college, or a graduate degree program.

► You have to be at least 18 years old

How to Participate

Choose a relevant topic and write an essay that is at least 800 words long. Email your signed essays with your full name, university name, and your address to scholarship@migvapor.com before the end of the current application period. One person can send only one entry.

Here are a few things that our judges love to see in essays:

► Write an evidence-based essay.

► Writing about a personal experience can give you an edge over the competitors.

► Make sure your essay is original, succinct, and gives a clear, logical message.

► If you think a picture or video will go well with your essay, use it by all means.

Winner Announcement
