Vegetarians and people supporting it are seriously hard to find in current world. People have different reasons so support and follow it. There are a few organizations who actually offer scholarships to those who have been vegetarian or have made some superb efforts to encourage it. For some individuals, eating the same animal they love is quite difficult to do. There are a few organizations which are engaged in offering services which include:
- Educating and spreading awareness regarding benefits of vegetarian diet and its importance among people in general.
- Health benefits of taking a vegetarian diet also fall under the same category.
- Encouraging people regarding vegetarian diet and introduction to some of the scholarships available for encouragement.
Special Organization VRG
In maximum number of cases, the organizations offering scholarships for vegetarianism are private and rely on donations and aids from governments. VRG (Vegetarian Resource Group) is such an organization. It has been engaged in offering the above stated services and frequently visits schools and other educational institutes to increase awareness of the health benefits of vegetarian foods. They also provide suggestions regarding diet programs for people in different age groups.
Scholarships for Vegetarians
The organizations have not only been promoting vegetarianism but also encourage those who assist it in the task. Recently it started a scholarship scheme under which students passing high schools will be offered $5000, if they had made impressive efforts for vegetarianism. One needs to fill the specific form to claim his/her eligibility for this purpose. Candidates need to fill all three parts containing personal and academic information. There is a special column for reference thus, one need to come up with an authorized reference. In order to get the correct information of one’s views regarding vegetarianism, in the given space he/she needs to present their thoughts about topic and what steps can be taken to encourage it. In the last section the candidate has to provide academic details.
What makes such types of weirdest scholarships special is no one can actually think of receiving scholarships for their diet. Vegetarians are certainly going to find it amusing as it not only supports their eating habit, but offers a chance to win the scholarship for it. For students, it is an excellent opportunity to make the best use of their knowledge and also to spread awareness in their vegetarian mates.
