Ithaca College and the Helen Gurley Brown Foundation have renewed funding for the sixth cohort of BOLD Scholars after funding was not renewed in the Spring 2023 semester.

In a Feb. 27 email to the college community, Bonnie Prunty, vice president of Student Affairs and Campus Life, said the BOLD Women’s Leadership Network has received renewed funds from the Helen Gurley Brown Foundation. According to the email, the renewal of funds will allow the college’s senior leadership to open the application process for the program’s junior cohort. 

The college began partnering with BOLD in 2017 and continued to select one cohort each year until 2023. 

“In consultation with the Helen Gurley Brown Foundation, Ithaca College made the difficult decision not to select a new cohort during the Spring 2023 semester in order to ensure the alignment of our program goals with those of the collective goals for BOLD partner institutions,” Prunty wrote. 

The college partners with the BOLD Women’s Leadership Network to select 10 students during their sophomore year to receive funding for their junior and senior years of college. 

Prunty wrote that the college has a cohort of BOLD scholars set to graduate in Spring 2024. The applications for another cohort will open March 1 and will close March 22 at 5 p.m. 

Students who wish to be a candidate for the BOLD program must meet all the requirements, which include being a full-time student at the college, have junior standing at the start of the Fall 2024 semester, a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average, be in good judicial standing, demonstrate financial need and potential leadership. 

Applications will begin to be reviewed between March 25–29 and candidates will be notified if they were selected for the interview round. Interviews will be held between April 1–12 and the final candidates will be notified April 19.

Correction: A previous version stated “The college partners with the BOLD Women’s Leadership Network to select 10 female-identifying students of color during their sophomore year to receive funding for their junior and senior years of college.”
