Matsun Nutrition’s $500 Entrepreneur Scholarship For 2016

Welcome, College Students!

Could you use an extra $500 for school?

Here at Matsun Nutrition we strive to develop the healthiest liquid vitamins and supplements in the nation, while at the same time educating the public and creating an entrepreneurial spirit among today’s youth. As such, we are offering a one-time $500 scholarship award to assist students with the expenses of higher education. Although this scholarship is for one year only, we hope to offer one or more of these types of scholarships on an annual basis.

Scholarship Purpose

The purpose of this scholarship is to spark and tap into the creative minds of today’s youth.  We want to encourage you to explore the endless possibilities that are ahead of you and to dream BIG!  Part of our business is providing individuals with an opportunity to start their own small business.  We do this through our Private Label Program whereby people can choose liquid vitamins and supplements from our existing product line and label them as their own product with their own branded company name and logo.  They can then market and sell the products on their own website, eBay, Amazon and anywhere else they wish.  We also sell to very large chain stores, health supplement stores and pet stores throughout the U.S.  These are just a few examples.  You can choose any target market of customers you want and how you would market to them.

As such, we are seeking new, creative, original ideas on how you would market liquid vitamins and liquid supplements.  What we are looking for are simple, creative ways to reach new customers.  Keep in mind that whatever ideas and plan you come up with must be economically feasible and sufficiently detailed and organized.  The more specific the better.  We don’t want general ideas such as “Get a website”, “Spend $10,000 on TV ads”, “Set up some retail accounts” or “Post articles on Facebook”.  We’re looking for something that is not currently being done, a new way of marketing to reach potential customers.  Your submission can be as few as 1,000 words (about 2 pages) or a full 20-page report.  What really matters is your idea and your marketing plan.  Please see the Important Information listed below for deadlines and more details.
