Students take on huge amounts of debt to get access to the education they want and need. As a result of rising college costs, today’s average student graduates more than $30,000 in debt. By enabling students to fund their education through exclusive funding opportunities, Bold.org broadens access to that education in an affordable and sustainable way.
Bold.org awards millions of dollars and thousands of scholarships each year. We also further our mission through the Bold.org Scholarship Blog, which aims to eliminate student debt by helping students access well-researched, high-quality information covering the entire educational finance journey, including scholarships, grants, and other sources of aid so that all students, regardless of their financial status, are able to pursue higher education.
The Bold.org Scholarship Blog achieves this with a team of expert content writers and a rigorous, detailed publication process. All research and analysis found on the Bold.org Scholarship Blog is original, and is the result of an extensive data-gathering and validation process. We describe this process in detail here.
Our team is made up of expert college students and graduates with personal experience funding their education, using a voice catered to students to provide informational content through accessible means. With this student-centric voice, the team is able to serve a wide range of audiences, from high school users and college students to adult learners and graduates looking to pay off student loans.
The content found on Bold.org is original and published only after an extensive research process. Our skilled writers start the process by carrying out thorough research on topics related to education, financial aid, and student life. On average, we spend more than 100 hours per week meticulously researching each article we publish to provide our readers with the most recent information and statistics they need to make informed decisions about their education.
Before publishing, each article is independently fact-checked and edited by at least two reviewers to ensure accuracy and clarity. Articles are then reviewed and updated on a monthly basis to guarantee that they have the most up-to-date information.
Our writers draw on the comprehensive and diverse knowledge of our Campus Advisory Board, made up of six experts working at colleges around the country. This accomplished board advises the team on higher education processes and topics to bring fresh, informed perspectives to the publication.
