“Even in the mud and scum of things, something always, always sings.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life is short, so enjoy the time you have!
Instead of getting caught up in the chase for money, status, or other pursuits that fade away, it’s worth thinking about how you can enjoy every day on your journey to your goals.
As a small way to help people think more about how to create a life they enjoy, the ¡Viva la Vida! No-Essay Scholarship is open to all curious and passionate students interested in getting the most out of life.
The scholarship is open to all students and non-students from any field of study.
The application deadline is Sep 30, 2021. Winners will be announced on Oct 31, 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 Oct 31, 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.
