“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” – Malcolm X
Education has the potential to pave the way for many hopeful generations, but sadly, it’s not accessible to everyone.
In the United States, increasing tuition, lack of government funds, lack of resources, poor conditions, and many other factors limit many people’s ability to receive a sound education. This is particularly important today because a proper education is the way forward for everyone and should be accessible for all.
As one small way to promote more opportunities in education, the Bold.org Future of Education Scholarship exists to support students who are passionate about making sure future generations have access to education. The scholarship is open to all students and non-students from any field of study.
To apply, please write about one change to education you believe would positively impact future generations.
What is one change that you believe would make education better for future generations? Why?
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.
