“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.” - Ernest Hemingway
Now more than ever, compassionate people are needed at every inch of the globe.
It seems like every day, we see a new headline on the news outlining some sort of grievance, pain, or suffering that one or a group of people experience. While we all have our differences, it's important to understand that at the end of the day, everyone is human with their own emotions.
Instead of letting this negativity spread, it's important to practice compassion and empathy whenever you can. Whether it be with your family or a random stranger, compassion goes a long way in the way we go about our lives.
To support the endeavors of compassionate students across the country, the Bold Compassionate Students No-Essay Scholarship will support all students who make it their mission to practice compassion and empathy every day in their lives.
The scholarship is open to all students and non-students from any field of study.
The application deadline is Dec 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Dec 15, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 15, 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.
