If we talk about the current scenario, the majority of people are suffering from different types of physical and mental illness problems. They are unable to receive proper treatments due to a lack of nearby services. To support the enthusiastic students and universities, the foundation has been providing such grants on a regular basis.
The Foundation supports multiple counties including Tuscarawas, Holmes, Stark, and Wayne. The Foundation has two cycles for providing grants to the above-listed universities and other organizations.
How does the Foundation allot its grants?
The Austin-Bailey Health and Wellness Foundation opens up a request page from which Universities and Colleges and other organizations that provide health-related education can apply for the grant. The Foundation already has a list of such Universities that require additional funding to support their students for their better education.
After receiving a set of applications, the Foundation prepares a list to distribute the allotted funds through grants. They choose organizations and universities that provide health and wellness-related education.
All the information related to the grants and the allotted money is listed on their official website. The Foundation keeps itself active on social media as well. They keep us updated about their future ventures and upcoming grants.
