"All too often, the security of a mediocre present is more comfortable than the adventure of trying to be more in the future." - Tony Robbins
Comfort is the enemy of progress. We often stay in comfortable, but unfulfilling paths because of fear.
But it doesn't have to be this way. We can transform our relationship with fear by making fear our ally.
Instead of allowing our fear to paralyze us, we can build the habit of overcoming fear by choosing courage over comfort in the pursuit of leading a fulfilling life.
To encourage everyone to confront their fears and build more meaningful lives, the "Choose Courage Over Comfort" No-Essay Scholarship exists to support a courageous and ambitious person who wants to grow.
The scholarship is open to all students and non-students from any field of study. The only requirement is that you’re ready to learn, grow, and choose courage over comfort on your journey in life.
This scholarship has rolling monthly application deadlines. Students applying within earlier application windows will have a greater chance of winning the award.
The application deadline is Sep 30, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 31, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500. It will be awarded to 1 winner every 6 months.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 31, 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.
