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.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
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.
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.
