At Bold.org, we believe that the world will be shaped by the bold—the fighters, the risk-takers, the earnest overachievers who won’t take no for an answer—the ones who know that a mountain is climbed a step at a time.
Bold.org is built for students, like you, who are determined to make the climb.
As you join the Bold.org platform, you get the opportunity to showcase your goals, achievements, and drive to scholarship panels via your student profile.
The $10,000 “Be Bold” Scholarship is a no-essay scholarship that will be awarded to the applicant with the boldest profile.

The scholarship will be awarded to the student whose profile is most bold, according to these characteristics.
Furthermore, the scholarship will be unique in that it will favor students who apply earlier—who are bold and seize the day without procrastinating.
While the scholarship will be awarded on November 5, 2020, the scholarship will have rolling monthly application deadlines. Students applying within earlier application windows will have a greater chance of winning the award.
Students at any education level, school, field of study, and GPA will be considered.
