    The Robert Jordan Memorial Scholarship is an annual scholarship awarded to fans of the Wheel of Time. One undergraduate student, and one graduate student, at an accredited college or university will be chosen each year to receive a scholarship. Previously it was called the Servant of All Scholarship, however, it was renamed in 2007 to memorialize the life of our beloved Robert Jordan. In 2010, the scholarship was opened to all Wheel of Time fans, instead of being restricted to TarValon.Net members.

    It is with great pleasure that we are now accepting applications for the Robert Jordan Memorial Scholarship. Rank in the Tower is not a factor, nor is major, or how far along you are in your studies. Any student who is a current undergraduate or graduate at an accredited college or university, and can craft an essay in the English language fluently, qualifies to apply for this scholarship. Previous recipients may reapply as long as they still meet the criteria.

    The amount of each scholarship is $500 per student.

    Applications will be accepted starting May 1, 2020 thru June 5, 2020. Please access the application at the following link:

    The scholarships are awarded based on an essay. The topic of the essay shall be chosen by the Officers and Director of Community Outreach. Essays are read blind and voted on by the Hall of the Tower of TarValon.net Inc.
