“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing,” -Socrates.
Life is a constant learning experience, filled with growth, new experiences, and mistakes. In order to accumulate as much knowledge and wisdom as possible, it’s important to be open to learning new things.
This scholarship aims to help students learn from others and share their wisdom with the world.
Any student who draws wisdom from the world may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about a sentence you would like to share with the world and why it’s so important to you.
If you could share one sentence with the world, what would it be and why?
The application deadline is Jan 14, 2022. Winners will be announced on Feb 15, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Feb 15, 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.
