What Detox is pleased to offer its scholarship program to support and encourage undergraduate and graduate students working towards a marketing or nutrition degree.
Aims – The principal aim of this scholarship program is to offer financial support to current undergraduate and graduate students and to encourage serious and deserving students to continue their studies in marketing or nutrition. The focus on undergraduate students has been selected in recognition of our special interest in reaching and assisting young entrepreneurs as early as possible in their careers.

Use of Scholarships – Scholarship awards may be applied toward tuition, fees, books, field camp, or other costs directly related to undergraduate or graduate study.
Fields of Interest – Undergraduate or graduate students majoring in marketing or nutrition at an accredited college or university anywhere in the US or online are eligible to apply for a scholarship.
Basis of Award – The Scholarship Committee will make the final selection of students to receive a scholarship based on their review of the application task and two letters. The first letter will be from the student’s teacher or professor; the second letter will come from the student. The scholarships will be awarded primarily on the basis of financial need and academic qualifications; career goals, projects/accomplishments/educational plans, and the application task and recommendation letter will also be considered.
How To Apply – The Scholarship Committee requests the application task be either to complete a written paper focusing on the benefits and drawbacks of body detoxification, especially detox drinks (3,000-5,000 words) or to complete a detailed infographic illustrating the body’ detoxification process. Students agree to waive copyright for commercial use upon submission of their tasks. The Committee also requests a brief recommendation for each student submitting an application from their teacher or professor. The recommendation should include information on the student’s academic qualifications and accomplishments, career goals, financial needs, and reasons for selecting the candidate. We ask that the summary be no longer than two (2) printed pages and include at least one paragraph on each of the above listed criteria. The Committee may request additional information to complete its evaluation. In addition, the Scholarship Committee also requests a letter from the applicant specifically discussing three evaluation criteria: financial need, academic qualifications, and career goals (one paragraph for each criterion). Additional information on recent research projects, on-campus or off-campus activities and accomplishments, and educational plans that would aid the Committee in reaching its decision can also be included. The applicant’s letter should be a maximum of two (2) printed pages.
