This Site Is Like GoFundMe for College Scholarships And It’s Amazing

Across the United States, the average college or graduate school student will leave their respective program with more than $30,000 in debt. What's more, the majority of these students will be paying off their debts until they are in their forties. And, with the rapid increase in college tuition and the stagnation of wages, student debt has grown more than 700 percent for the past 15 years. There's good news coming, though, I promise. Enter Bold.org, a company with a mission to eliminate student debt. 

Sounds like a big idea, right? Well, Bold.org makes it easy. You see, companies and individuals can create customized scholarships for students in need and tailor them for specific races, ethnicities, religions, genders, places of origin, or areas of interest. Each scholarship varies in the amount given, and many do not require you to submit anything besides your basic information to qualify. Once you finish your registration, all you need to do for most of these is click submit. It's sort of like online shopping for scholarships and I wish I had known about it sooner.

You can register at Bold.org today and create a resume with your educational and extracurricular history in order for the database to become more specialized towards your skills and identity. The entire registration process takes around ten minutes, and then you are open to a database of thousands of scholarships for high school, college, and graduate students.  

For many scholarships, the largest struggle is completing the paperwork for your sponsor company so they are able to transfer the funds to your university. Bold.org does that work for you; all you need to do is apply, and if you receive the scholarship, then they will transfer the scholarship to your school. Funding your education has never been easier — register today and reduce your student loans with one click.
