    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. Previously called the Servant of All Scholarship, it was renamed in 2007 to memorialize Robert Jordan's life. In 2010, the scholarship was opened to all Wheel of Time fans, instead of being restricted to TarValon.Net members.

    Any student who is a current undergraduate or graduate at an accredited college or university and can write in the English language qualifies. Previous recipients can reapply as long as they are still eligible.

    The amount of the scholarship is $500 per student.

    We will be accepting applications starting May 17th, 2019 through July 5, 2019. You can access the application at the following link:

    Robert Jordan Memorial Scholarship Application

    The scholarships are awarded based on an essay written on a topic chosen by the Officers and Director of Community Outreach. This year, we ask you "How do you plan to use your education in a way that exemplifies being a Servant of All? "

    Essays are read blind and voted on by the Hall of the Tower of TarValon.net Inc.

    Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Director of Community Outreach at outreach@tarvalon.net

    Do we have previous year's winning essays posted anywhere? I'd love to read even an excerpt or two - especially from the early years to see what kind of impact this program might have had. Thanks!
