Wisdom, a term so loosely used today that often, we don’t know when we truly experience it.
In life, some people hold more wisdom than others. This may be the result of experience, upbringing, or a vast difference in their education. Nonetheless, wise people send wise messages that can change the lives of others in more ways than one.
In an effort to allow students to reflect on the wise words they’ve been told, the Bold Wise Words Scholarship will go to one student in any field of study who has heard some profound and life-changing words they’d like to share.
To apply, please write about the wisest thing you’ve ever heard.
What is the wisest thing you've ever heard?
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.
