“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” - Albert Einstein
Our world is currently facing many challenges. Deep thinking and creativity are the only ways to solve our problems and make the world a better place.
As one way to encourage more thinking, the Bold Deep Thinking Scholarship exists to support a student who is passionate about thinking deeply and making a positive impact on the world.
This scholarship is open to all students from any field of study. To apply, tell us which problem you think poses the greatest threat to the world, and one way we can work towards fixing it.
What's the biggest problem facing the world right now? What's one way we can work on this problem?
The application deadline is Jun 25, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jul 25, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 25, 2022. 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
