Last Updated: 07 May 2018 To Offer Annual $1000 Scholarships

At HealthyButSmart we believe in the importance of scientific education, and the value of science reaching out from labs and universities to influence conversations in society, politics and of course health.

As part of our commitment to advancing the role of science in society, HealthyButSmart offers annual $1000 scholarships to students studying in any area of science, at either college or graduate levels of education. Our hope is that by supporting science education we can take one more tiny part in creating better societies that make more evidence based decisions.

How To Apply

Applicants must submit an article of 500 words minimum that they themselves have written, that is an evidence summary for a popular health claim or product, just like we do at You can see examples of our evidence summaries here: Himalayan Pink Salt or 10 Benefits of Lemon Water That Someone Made Up. 

(Please note: these are different from our product reviews like this for the Vitamix 6300 or the Ninja Ultima blender)

Your article needn’t be as comprehensive as these but it must be in this style and it must cite legitimate published research.

In addition to earning the $1000 scholarship, you’ll also have the chance to see your article published on with your own name and resource link. This represents a great opportunity to begin influencing others with your education, even before you graduate.

Simply submit your article to scholarship AT to enter. You’ll be contacted when we receive your submission.
