Puffy Dream Big Scholarship Program

We here at Puffy are quite aware of how important a full night of sleep is to help give you the energy to reach your goals. One of the biggest reasons for creating the Puffy Mattress was to help people sleep better. A good nights rest makes a world of difference when it comes to the energy you have to take on the day, but when it comes to college life, getting 8 hours of sleep at night is almost laughably improbable...

 

Puffy Mattress Dream Big Scholarship Program
A $700 Undergraduate/Graduate Scholarship

We understand that those of you in college who dream big and want to push for more are usually up burning the midnight oil. Many of you adopt a "work hard, play hard" attitude because you don't want to miss out on any opportunities. With all the stressors you deal with, from class, to financials, to work... sleep falls on the wayside.

You are the dreamers of tomorrow, and Puffy specializes in making dreams. We want to help alleviate some of that financial stress and hopefully provide you with better sleep and a chance for better successes in life. Our annual Puffy "Dream Big" Scholarship awards one Undergraduate or Graduate student $700 based on merit and personal drive.

Those of you who have big dreams: the doers, motivators, makers; those of you who want to see a positive change in the world around you, whether you're studying Engineering, Business, Art, as long as you are passionate and driven, we encourage you to apply.
