mattress advisor's sleep science scholarship

Due Date:  March 20, 2020

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. Over time we have built out a sleep resources directory dedicated to updating readers about the latest strides in sleep science and generating further awareness of the importance of sleep health.

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.
