Last updated 5/31/2021 at 12:59pm
The scholarship doubled from last year's amount to offer 20 grants in the amount of $1,000 each to qualifying student applicants.
"At Veriheal, education and diversity are at the center of our core values, yet we know how expensive obtaining a college degree can be - particularly in the midst of a global pandemic," said co-founder and co-CEO Samuel Adetunji. "We were overwhelmed by the number of applicants we received for the ten awards we offered in 2020, so we're excited to double that number in 2021 and offer scholarships to 20 promising students across a range of disciplines, backgrounds, and areas of study."
"With this scholarship fund, we're putting $20,000 directly into the hands of a new generation of innovators who will help shape the future of our industry," said Veriheal co-founder and co-CEO, Joshua Green. "The Cannabis category is growing at an extraordinary rate, and there are many complex problems that must be solved across all sectors, from finance and technology to science and education. At Veriheal, we're fortunate to be in the position to support budding entrepreneurs from all walks of life and bring diverse, fresh perspectives to the Cannabis field."
