School is almost here! We're celebrating this major milestone with a scholarship + giveaway!
We know that the back to school transition is going to look a little different this time around. This scholarship exists to equip you with everything you need to jumpstart your education and help get you started off on the right foot.
The #Back2SchoolBold Scholarship is open to all students from any field of study. To apply, please submit a photo, Pinterest board, video, or any other visual medium. Please also share a short essay about what inspired your #Back2SchoolBold moment.
Your submission can be anything ranging from Y2K fashion, dorm room tours, tips on saving money, or anything that you'd like to share. The winner will be selected based on their short essay and accompanying file.
As a bonus, we will also be running a merch giveaway alongside this scholarship. To participate in the giveaway, you will need to post your submission publicly (feed post only), tag Bold.org, and use the hashtag to participate in the merch giveaway.
We’ll be putting together a collection of our favorite submissions on our social media channels for everyone to review and vote on.
What inspired your #Back2SchoolBold moment?
The application deadline is Sep 30, 2021. Winners will be announced on Oct 5, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Oct 5, 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.
If you have any questions about this scholarship or the Bold.org platform, just email email@example.com and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.
