Mattress Advisor’s Sleep Science Scholarship

Our commitment to sleep science began with helping our readers understand the importance of sleep and its impact on every aspect of health and wellbeing. Our research has highlighted the profound impact of sleep health on education. Many students struggle with sleep problems during their college years. Students are faced with challenges that interrupt their sleep including increased stress and anxiety from the pressures to succeed, dealing with the difficulty of balancing a social life, and troubles managing their own time.

This inspired us to help students by introducing our own sleep scholarship as well as curating a number of other sleep scholarships available.

You may qualify for one or more of our scholarships if you’re interested in studying or pursuing a degree in sleep science, feel passionately about your dreams, or are dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle, which starts by improving your sleep quality.
