Giving back helps foster the spirit, growth, and resilience of all communities.
When you find ways to support your community, you contribute to the virtuous cycle of giving that helps individuals and the entire community grow stronger.
One of the many ways people give back is by paying it forward; giving an act of kindness to someone in hopes that they will carry the torch onward to someone else.
To promote kindness and to encourage students to continue paying it forward, the Bold Pay it Forward No-Essay Scholarship will be awarded to one student from any field of study who is committed to paying it forward.
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.
