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!

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 Feb 25, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 3, 2021.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 3, 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.
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.
If you have any questions about this scholarship or the Bold.org platform, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.
