You have a story that deserves to be told and a voice that needs to be heard. We want to hear you, and we want to help you be heard by the world!
I Weigh is all about radical inclusivity and allyship, creating a community where no one feels alone. Our mission is to amplify, advocate, and pass the mic, while inspiring everyone around us to continue learning and growing as individuals, which in turn will result in growth collectively as a society.
As part of our mission to amplify new voices, we’re so excited to launch a scholarship, and at least three students will be awarded $5,000 each for their education!
To apply, share your story with us below, and if you feel inspired, add a link to an original art piece, song, vlog, or any piece of original content that shares what makes you, you!
Allyship is a complex and lifelong journey. Tell us a story of a time recently you showed up for a community or individual, and how it impacted you.
The application deadline is Dec 18, 2021. Winners will be announced on Feb 28, 2022.
The scholarship award is $15,000.
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.
