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 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.
