"Put a grain of boldness into everything you do." - Baltasar Gracián
Living a good life as you define it is no easy task.
On your journey through life, you will face fear, discomfort, disappointment, and a host of other emotions that can stop you in your path. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to embrace optimism, kindness, adventure, and the subtle joys of what the world has to offer.
Regardless of where you find yourself today, remember that you only have one life to live, and it's up to you to make it count. Embracing the world with boldness can help you do that.
To encourage people to create an adventurous and exciting life as they define it, the "A Bold Life" No-Essay scholarship exists to support a student who will do what it takes to live life to the fullest.
The scholarship is open to all students and non-students from any field of study. The only requirement is that you're committed to overcoming fear and relentlessly pursuing a life that will leave you fulfilled.
This scholarship has rolling monthly application deadlines. Students applying within earlier application windows will have a greater chance of winning the award.
The application deadline is Aug 31, 2021. Winners will be announced on Nov 30, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 30, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
