A gift for Vegetarians

Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, The Vegetarian Resource Group each year will award $20,000 in college scholarship money to graduating U.S. high school students who have promoted vegetarianism in their schools and / or communities. Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or fowl. Vegans are vegetarians who do not use other animal products such as dairy or eggs.

Entries may only be sent by students graduating from high school in Spring 2022. Only 280 applications were submitted in 2019.

Applicants will be judged on having shown compassion, courage, and a strong commitment to promoting a peaceful world through a vegetarian diet / lifestyle. Payment will be made to the student’s college (U.S. based only). Winners of the scholarship give permission to release their names to the media. Applications and essays become property of The Vegetarian Resource Group.
