Apply for the Bicycle Advisor Scholarship
not later than August 1st, 2018.
Applications are now being accepted for the Bicycle Advisor scholarship.
This year, we would like applicants to think about the impact a bicycle can have on students in underdeveloped countries.
For some, being able to obtain an education is out of reach due to the distance between their home and the educational institution. Organizations that send school supplies, make financial contributions or donate clothing are all invaluable to a student’s education in these countries, but many simply can’t attend because of the commute.
Bicycles are an affordable, eco-friendly mode of transportation that can benefit thousands of students across the globe. They are easy to use and easier to maintain than cars in countries where resources and repair services are limited.
Award amount is $800.
Please note that all applications must be submitted by August 1st, 2018. The winner will be announced on August 8th, 2018.
■ U.S. Citizen
■ Currently enrolled in a high school, college or university at the time the application is submitted.
■ You have not received a scholarship from Bicycle Advisor in the past.
