iVein Health and Wellness Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 2
Award Deadline: Dec 31, 2024

Attending college can be stressful and taxing – often affecting students’ health and wellness. Researchers at Auburn University followed 131 students over four years of college and found that a whopping 70% gained weight by graduation (an average of 12, and up to 37 pounds). The overall percentage of students found to be overweight increased from 18% to 31%. The researchers noted gains in body fat composition and waist circumference.

IVC (iVein.com), the trusted leader in preventing and treating vein disease, understands the importance of learning and practicing healthy habits during the formative college years and is offering the iVein Health and Wellness Scholarship to reward students who are committed to a lifetime of healthy habits.
