All over the world, activists dedicate their lives to bettering their communities and the world around them.
Progress depends on these activists to leverage their unique talents and interests, to organize and engage their peers, and to call attention to the issues that are important to them. This work is often unpaid or underpaid but is incredibly valuable.
The Bold Activism Scholarship will support one determined activist in their effort to create equal opportunity and dismantle systems that oppress through thoughtful engagement and activity.
The scholarship is open to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students in any field of study. To apply, you will write about your interest in and goals within social or environmental activism.
What impact do you hope to have? What action you are taking or plan to take means the most to you personally? Share some of your passion and the ways you are taking action on that passion to improve the world around you.
The application deadline is Feb 7, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 1, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 1, 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.
