Keeping fit has always been a challenge. It has been made even more challenging due to the sudden shifts caused by the pandemic.

15.5% of high school students in the US are obese, while more than two-thirds of all adults are either overweight or obese.

These statistics are rising at an alarming rate, with no sign of slowing down. With the pandemic, these numbers are likely to grow even faster.

At Mechanism, we believe that fitness should be part of a daily commitment to longevity and a healthy lifestyle. By promoting healthy lifestyle choices, we hope to empower the next generation of thinkers and builders to thrive.

This scholarship will be awarded to one college student and is open to any field of study. 

We will be assessing an applicant’s ambition, talent, and drive, in addition to how fitness plays a meaningful role in their lives.
