I’m a little late this year, but better late than never! This is the official announcement for the 2nd Annual MPD BJD Scholarship! The recipient of the scholarship with receive $600 to spend on a BJD of their choice. There is a little bit of work and a video (after all, this is in conjunction with my YouTube Channel) involved with the application process, but if you've ever applied for a scholarship for college, that should not surprise you too much. This is my way of giving back to the Doll Community that has given me so much over the years. Please check out my YouTube video for a complete explanation here, and see official rules below. Please also note that if people find weird loopholes or situations I have not addressed, I may add to or amend the rules as needed. All applications are due by midnight EST on December 22nd, and the winner will be announced on December 24th. It will be a New Doll for the New Year! Good luck and have fun!
