The student debt crisis has reached unprecedented heights in recent years, reaching a total of more than $1.7 trillion in student debt.
With more than 45 million borrowers nationwide, student loans are hampering the financial freedom of many Americans and discouraging some students from investing in their education.
At Bold.org, we’re committed to fighting the student debt crisis and helping more students attain their degrees.
The Bold January No-Essay Scholarship aims to help students take charge of their finances and afford higher education.
This is a no-essay scholarship that is open to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students.
The application deadline is Jan 30, 2022. Winners will be announced on Feb 28, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Feb 28, 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.
