“Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.” - Washington Irving
Great minds are more important than ever.
In order to better the world and tackle the many problems that we’re facing, it is essential for great minds to work together and think critically about our world.
The Bold Great Minds Scholarship exists to support one student with a great mind who is passionate about using their mind to the fullest in order to benefit the world.
This scholarship is open to any student from all fields of study. To apply, tell us about a historical figure you admire, and 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.
