If you are interested in applying for the BOLD Scholarship, please do so by Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
A complete application consists of this form and a copy of your unofficial transcript and a photo sent firstname.lastname@example.org. The criteria candidates must meet to be considered for the BOLD scholarship are:
