The Advanced Stem Cell Institute Annual $1,500 Scholarship Award Opportunity

Advanced Stem Cell Institute is proud to present our 2022 ASCI Scholarship opportunity!

The work we do at Advanced Stem Cell Institute is dedicated to providing patients in our community access to innovative stem cell therapy and delivering the most comprehensive and advanced care possible. This scholarship is designed to give back to a different kind of community: the community of students and learners who will one day become the future leaders of the medical field.

The ASCI scholarship is an essay contest designed to call upon bright, emerging students to share their thoughts, hopes, and ideas for the future of stem cell research. This scholarship award will provide one extraordinary student with a scholarship award of $1,500 to put towards their goal of pursuing higher education. 

Whether students are well on their way to completing their college degrees or are just about to embark on their first year, we want to help make that path a little easier. Students of all years who meet our qualifications and are interested in the study of stem cells and regenerative medicine are welcome to apply for our 2022 ASCI Scholarship!

ASCI Scholarship Objectives

Stem cell research is the cornerstone of non-surgical, drug-free pain management and regenerative medicine. While many incredible advancements have been made using stem cell therapy in recent years, there is always more work to be done and more to discover. We know that we cannot do it alone.

The objectives of the ASCI Scholarship are twofold. First, to help support the continued education of a student interested in exploring and advancing the field of stem cell research. Additionally, this scholarship aims to spread awareness about the role of stem cell research in the field of regenerative medicine.

This scholarship is an opportunity for us to play our part in inspiring the future generation of doctors, researchers, and scientists who will help us make new waves in the medical community. We know that it takes years of education to have enough information and context to tackle the problems of the future. That is why we want to offer financial support to a student who is dedicated to further exploring how stem cell research can continue to evolve and change the world.

Stem cells offer us the possibility of managing conditions like diabetes, heart diseases, and neurological disorders and promoting unparalleled healing from bone, muscle, skin, and tendon injuries. But this is only the beginning. Our team at Advanced Stem Cell Institute is always looking to be inspired by the next best thing, and that is why we want to hear from the next generation of students and thinkers.
