The Bold.org Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and any additional terms and conditions listed as applicable to a particular scholarship shall be deemed an integral part of these Official Scholarship Rules.

Please note, if you are under 18, your parent or guardian must read and consent to these Official Scholarship Rules on your behalf.

1. General Conditions

Eligibility. You may apply for a chance to win a scholarship only if you meet the eligibility requirements set forth on the webpage for the particular scholarship. Additionally, scholarships are non-transferable and must be accepted as awarded and will not be paid to academic institutions outside of the United States. Without limiting the foregoing, you may not be an officer, director, member or employee of Bold.org or any other party associated with the development or administration of the scholarship, or an immediate family member (i.e., parents, children, siblings or spouse) of any of the foregoing, or a person living in the household of any of these individuals, whether or not related. Further, Bold.org reserves the right to disqualify any applicant from the scholarship in its sole discretion at any time.

Application. No purchase or payment is necessary to apply for scholarships. Applicants must meet the scholarship’s eligibility requirements, submit a complete application through the Bold.org platform by the application deadline, and agree to be bound by these Official Scholarship Rules. Bold.org expressly reserves the right to disqualify any applicant and/or applications that are inaccurate, incomplete, or that Bold.org believes in good faith to be generated by an automated means or scripts or are the result of plagiarism.

Selection. Accepted scholarship applications will be reviewed by representatives of Bold.org or the scholarship provider to determine the winner of each scholarship. All decisions regarding the scholarship, including without limitation the selection of the winner, shall be final and binding in all respects. Bold.org reserves the right not to award a scholarship if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive any qualified applications.

Notification. Scholarship recipients will be notified via the contact information provided to Bold.org during the application process. Scholarship recipients may be subject to verification of eligibility and must be, at all times, in compliance with these Official Scholarship Rules. Although information that you provide may be verified, Bold.org is not under any obligation to verify any of the information that you provide, and you hereby warrant that all information that you provide in your application and otherwise in connection with the scholarship is complete and accurate. If an award notification is returned as undeliverable or a potential winner does not supply the required verification within the time specified, the award will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate recipient at Bold.org’s sole discretion.

Awarding. After successful notification of a scholarship award and verification, Bold.org will provide payment of the award to the scholarship winner’s accredited academic institution to be applied towards tuition after receiving proof of enrollment. Unless otherwise stated, no scholarship monies will be paid directly to the winner.

General Terms. Scholarship recipients, by acceptance of their award, agree to release Bold.org, its employees, representatives, agents, contractors, assigns, advertisers, officers, directors, and shareholders from any and all liability, loss, damage, cost, claim arising out of their participation in the scholarship. Bold.org reserves the right to modify or terminate scholarships at any time for any reason in its sole discretion, with or without notice. The scholarship winner is solely responsible for any state or federal tax liability in association with acceptance of a scholarship. If any provision of the terms and conditions of a scholarship or these Official Scholarship Rules shall be held void, voidable, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Bold.org is not affiliated with, sponsored by, or endorsed by any academic institution.
