“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” - Marcus Tullius Cicero
Reading is a wonderful source of both education and entertainment. As the world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, the pleasure of a great book must not be forgotten.
The Bold Great Books Scholarship exists to encourage students to continue reading, learning, and applying their acquired knowledge to their daily lives.
All students from any field of study may apply for this scholarship. You can apply by telling us about your favorite book and why you love it so much.
What is your favorite book and why?
The application deadline is Jun 30, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jul 30, 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 30, 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.
