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.

The application deadline is Jun 12, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jul 12, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 12, 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
