Healthline Stronger Scholarship: Supporting students creating a stronger, healthier world for all

Healthline launched the Healthline Stronger Scholarship in 2017 to support college students using their education to improve the health and wellness landscape. Each year, we partner with a mission-driven organization to pick a different health and wellness theme. Together, we recognize outstanding students going above and beyond to address this topic through their coursework, extracurriculars, career goals, and community outreach.

Over the last six years, the Healthline Stronger Scholarship has:

  • Awarded $100,000+ in scholarship funds
  • Recognized 21 outstanding students
  • Served 6 health and wellness areas, including health equity, food security, mental health, chronic conditions, and climate change

Follow us on social media to be the first to know when our 2023 Healthline Stronger Scholarship opens.

“The connection between climate change and health is important to me because it hits close to home. Not only are they fascinating topics, these two issues are part of humanity’s most pressing existential challenges: the pandemic and the climate crisis. I’ve seen my home state of California experience increasingly violent fires every year.” READ MORE
