The Dietspotlight.com Research Leadership Scholarship Program was created in the hopes that it may encourage students in various health fields to work toward a future in which obesity and it’s related problems can be controlled. Interested students are asked to write a 900-1,500 word essay discussing the relationship between body weight and self-esteem, and how reaching a healthy body weight might improve a person’s self-esteem. Essays might address issues of real versus perceived notions of “ideal body weight”, how media/celebrity images create idealized perceptions of body-image, and how a person might address those issues in the pursuit of improved self-esteem through the achievement of fitness goals. Submissions must be made online by December 31, 2014.
