Sleep Scholarship is offering a $1,000 sleep scholarship to eligible high school, college and graduate students in an effort to promote sleep awareness.

According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), the best way to maximize performance in school is to get enough sleep every night. Many students attempt to get by with just six hours of sleep, thinking that they can catch up on lost sleep over the weekend. Unfortunately, this idea does more harm than good, because it upsets the body’s biological clock and affects the quality of your sleep. is looking for creative video applications that answer the following two questions:

  1. How important is sleep as a public health issue? Sleep has gotten a lot of coverage in the last few years and we’d like to know how you think it stacks up and why you feel that way. Please use research and statistics to back up your opinions.
  2. Describe your current relationship with sleep and assess the quality of that relationship. Research and cover at least two to three ways you think you should change your lifestyle/sleep hygiene habits to improve your sleep health and how you plan to implement them over the next year of your life.

At, we value education highly and want to give back to our community at large. We are also passionate about promoting sleep awareness and created this sleep scholarship to both help further that cause and to help students pay for the costs of higher education.
