“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 Mar 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Apr 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 1, 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.
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.
