Mental health is a critical factor in life, yet many people continue to struggle with it every day.
In 2019, 51.5 million adults in the U.S., almost one in five, were living with a mental illness. College students and other young adults also have high rates of mental illness, as one in four people between the ages of 18 and 24 have a mental illness.
The Bold Mental Health Awareness Scholarship will support one student who is struggling with mental health or is passionate about helping others who struggle with mental health.
This scholarship is open to all students from any field of study. You can apply by telling us about what you think should be done to help people who struggle with mental health.
What's one practical solution for helping more people who struggle with mental health?
The application deadline is Jun 24, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jul 24, 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 24, 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.
