In the United States, veterans fight to secure the values and liberties of the country.
Veterans deserve our immense support for their bravery, but it's clear we're not doing enough. A staggering 1.5 million veterans live in poverty, and many are homeless or experience severe mental health conditions.
Many dependents of veterans also bear this weight, often shouldering financial and caretaker responsibilities.
As one small act to work on this problem, the Veteran’s Scholarship exists to support the academic endeavors and interests of veterans or dependents of veterans.
Applicants must write about a personal failure they have endured and what they did to overcome or learn from it.
Bold.org will be awarding a scholarship each day in November to celebrate National Scholarship Month. Follow along on Bold.org's Instagram and TikTok for daily announcements of scholarships and winners!
Please describe a personal failure you have endured during your lifetime. What did you do to overcome it? What lessons did you learn from it?
The application deadline is Nov 9, 2020. Winners will be announced on Nov 11, 2020.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 11, 2020. 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.
