Vegetarian Resource Group Scholarships in USA: TWO $5,000 SCHOLARSHIPS PLUS ONE $10,000 SCHOLARSHIP

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, Vegetarian Resources Group annually awards $20,000 in college scholarships to U.S. high school graduates who promote vegetarianism in schools and/or communities. Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish or poultry. A vegetarian is a vegetarian who does not consume other animal products (such as dairy products or eggs). 

The first prize is US$10,000 and the second prize is US$5,000. Applicants will be judged for showing compassion, courage and a firm commitment to promoting a peaceful world through a vegetarian/lifestyle. Payment will be made to the student's university (US only).

Scholarship recipients can announce their names to the media. The application and thesis become the property of Vegetarian Resources Group. We may request more information from the finalists.
