Are you passionate about making this world tobacco-free? If yes, here’s the good news for you: MigVapor awards $3,000 in scholarships every year to the students who are committed to playing their part in preventing the deaths caused by smoking tobacco. Our vision is to create a tobacco-free world and stop more than 480,000 yearly deaths caused by smoking.
MigVapor Scholarship Information
MigVapor offers scholarship awards for the students who present their well-researched and evidence-based essay to encourage smokers to kick their addiction. Remember, smoking not only impacts the smoker, but also other people around them.
Tobacco is unarguably the biggest avoidable cause of death in the world. In the U.S. alone, more than 40 million people smoke tobacco cigarettes – that’s almost 17% of the total population. According to World Health Organization, about 50% of tobacco users die because of a disease caused by smoking. Every smoker realizes the harms of tobacco, yet it’s extremely hard to quit it – some experts believe it’s even more addictive than heroin and cocaine. Researches show that only 4% of the people succeed in quitting tobacco smoking when they don’t use any medicinal aid. Moreover, about two-thirds of smokers who do quit for a while, eventually take up smoking again.
We want to raise awareness of the potential dangers of smoking tobacco cigarettes. We encourage students to come up with a viable solution to help the smokers make a positive change in their lives. Your write-up has to show the people, who want to quit, a way out. You may also talk about e-cigarettes and vaporizers, and whether they can be a good choice in tobacco harm-reduction.
The winning candidates for the first, second and third places will receive scholarships in the amounts of $1,900, $700 and $400, respectively. Each winner of this essay contest will be awarded a check and these funds may only be used to cover the educational expenses.
