Have you ever felt like a misfit? Maybe at your school, in your town, or even in your own home?
Everybody's different, and we're not all made to follow the same path. Feeling like an outsider can be scary and isolating, and the dreams that we desire and the path that we want to take doesn’t always seem possible. Regardless of societal norms and external pressure, we all should have the chance to express ourselves and have access to the tools and education we need to do so.
In the spirit of my latest single release, I’m creating the Misfit Scholarship to help misfits like myself follow their creative dreams.
This scholarship is for the misfits in life, those that are brave enough to be different, to forge their own path, bring originality, perspective, and beauty to the world.
I can’t wait to see what you create!
Follow Evie Irie:
What has made you feel like a misfit in your life, and how has being a misfit shaped your dreams? How do you want to use your unique perspective to change the world?
The application deadline is May 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on May 20, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 20, 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.
