“Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.” – Jim Rohn
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.
As one small way to promote giving back and volunteering for your community, the Bold.org Volunteering Matters No-Essay Scholarship exists to support someone who is committed to giving back to their broader community through distinct service efforts.
The scholarship is open to all students and non-students from any field of study. The only requirement is that you believe in the power of volunteering to be an immensely positive force toward a better and more equitable world.
The application deadline is Dec 15, 2021. Winners will be announced on Dec 31, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 31, 2021. 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.
