Choose Courage Over Comfort No-Essay Scholarship

We can transform our relationship with fear by making fear our ally.

About the Scholarship

“All too often, the security of a mediocre present is more comfortable than the adventure of trying to be more in the future.” – Tony Robbins

Comfort is the enemy of progress. We often stay in comfortable, but unfulfilling paths because of fear.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can transform our relationship with fear by making fear our ally.

Instead of allowing our fear to paralyze us, we can build the habit of overcoming fear by choosing courage over comfort in the pursuit of leading a fulfilling life.

To encourage everyone to confront their fears and build more meaningful lives, the “Choose Courage Over Comfort” No-Essay Scholarship exists to support a courageous and ambitious person who wants to grow.

The scholarship is open to all students and non-students from any field of study. The only requirement is that you’re ready to learn, grow, and choose courage over comfort on your journey in life.

 

Note: For high school students, this scholarship is one of the top 30 easiest scholarships for high school seniors.
