Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to apply to these scholarships?
Each scholarship has unique selection criteria that are detailed on each scholarship page on Bold.
Do I need to be a student to apply?
Not necessarily! Each scholarship has it's own unique scholarship criteria and some do not require that you are pursuing post-secondary education.
Is there an age requirement in order to apply?
There is no age requirement to applying, however there may be other requirements in order to qualify. Please see the individual scholarship pages for more details.
Why scholarships?
I chose to go with the medium of scholarships because I know first-hand how they can have a very direct and tangible impact on a person. That is exactly why I chose to call the scholarships series AMPLIFY, because they can have such an outsized impact.
What is the minimum donation required?
The minimum donation on is $50.
How can I start my own scholarship?
There are several scholarship platforms out there, but I chose to work with Bold because they make it incredibly easy for you to set up scholarships, operationalize the process, be compliant, and allow others to contribute as well. If you're interested in getting started, you can follow these steps to start your own scholarship or start a scholarship in memory of someone.
If I donate to a scholarship, can I help choose the winner?
I've set up this initiative such that people can partner with me on scholarships, if they contribute $500 or more to that scholarship. I can't incorporate every donor's feedback into the decision, but I do want to give larger donors the ability to have a say in the process. Other donors will be featured on the scholarship page, but not engage with the decision process.
Where can I learn more about the initiative?
