One of the most unique traits of humans is our ability to not only deeply study or understand a subject, but to codify that information in such a way that we can share our learnings with other humans. This is how we continue to evolve as a species and build the world’s knowledge base.
Today though, the cost of learning a new skill that can change your life is lower than ever; whether it be through a bootcamp, a nano-degree, or through a series of MOOCs. The democratization of education has made re-skilling not only affordable, but considering how quickly the workforce is changing, it’s almost essential.
Education is an opportunity, but also a mindset. And we believe that it’s important to foster this mindset within people of any age.
The Bold Lifelong Learners No-Essay Scholarship exists to support lifelong learners that want to acquire a new skill that will be transformative in their lives, whether it be learning to code, digital marketing, writing, or whatever will have a lasting impact on their lives.
All students who have a passion for learning are eligible to apply for this scholarship opportunity.
The application deadline is Feb 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Feb 28, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500.
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.
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.
