Sheridan, WY – BattlePACs, a subsidiary of StandardDAO, today announced The Voices of America Scholarship for students who demonstrate a passion for engaging in political conversations and shaping the future direction of the country. The company is making $30,000 available to outspoken young people and beginning today, students from across the U.S. can apply.
The new scholarship program aligns with the overall mission of BattlePACs, a soon-to-be-launched political technology platform that will feature digital collectibles, election simulations, online debates, cause-based campaigns, and more. BattlePACs aims to increase political participation and promote civil conversations by offering citizens, especially young people, a new and more engaging way to make their voices heard.
“The BattlePACs Voices of America Scholarship is the first of its kind to reward students for being outspoken and making their voices heard. In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing media and social media landscape, students must engage on the issues that matter to them or risk being left out of the conversation entirely,” said BattlePACs Chief Executive Officer Aaron Rafferty.
The creation of the scholarship program and the forthcoming launch of BattlePACs comes at a critical juncture. The midterm elections are around the corner, and the upcoming 2024 presidential race may be the most consequential of our lifetimes. With so much at stake, it is critical that every citizen have a voice in determining the direction of the country, according to Rafferty.
“There is no better time than the upcoming midterm elections for a shift in the public debate where students and young people drive more of the national political agenda,” Rafferty added. “We are witnessing unprecedented polarization and a hardening of political positions on both sides of the aisle. Young people are our best hope for disrupting the status quo, breaking down barriers, and fostering civil political discourse, which is what BattlePACs aims to achieve. Conversations are the most important thing to move America toward a future that works for everyone.”
Scholarship applicants will need to write a prompt about what Freedom of Speech in America means to them and also submit a video via their social media channel of choice (e.g., TikTok, YouTube, Instagram) as part of the submission process. Applications open today and will be accepted until December 31, 2022.
In order to apply, students must be attending a U.S. University, be U.S. residents, and holding a current college or university email address. One hundred scholarships of $300 each will be awarded to the winners on a rolling basis, starting on January 15th, 2022.
