This is a brand new program launched this year, 2008. We are happy that you’re one of the first recipient/ member of this program. This program is designed to help students create and increase their own scholarship funding. With the assistance of this program, friends and family can play an important role in helping their loved ones achieve their goals in attending college. The main goal for this program is to provide scholarship dollars for every student that becomes a member. We will do our part first. Every student that becomes a member automatically receives a $50.00 Scholarship to get them on their way. At MBP Healthy Living for Youth Scholarship Program, our motto is scholarships earned for students by students. Therefore it is the responsibility of the student to earn scholarship dollars through the various options that will be discussed later on. The age range for participation is infancy to 18. After age eighteen, students will no longer be members of this program. At that age, it is assumed that students should’ve graduated high school and should be freshmen at a college of their choice. That is why it's very important to start at an early age in this program in order to achieve the most of what the program has to offer. In the pages to come, we will show how to increase your scholarship dollars, scholarship potential earnings, program rules and operations, membership, essay contest, and how to maintain membership longevity.
