You’re never too young to start investing and trading. We’re proud to offer the Bull Markets Investing and Trading Scholarship for college and university students.
Hi, I’m Troy Bombardia, a former hedge fund manager and now private trader. I achieved financial success at a young age because I got started in the financial markets while I was in high school. The younger you are, the more time you have to profit from bull markets and bear markets.
That’s why I’m proud to offer an annual scholarship of $1,000 to new and current college and university students. Submissions will be accepted starting from April 1 of each year. One winner will be chosen on September 1 of each year.
How to apply for the Bull Markets Investing and Trading Scholarship
Applicants must submit an answer to all of the following questions. Each answer must be at least 250 words.
- How long have you been involved with the financial markets (e.g. stock market, forex, commodities, bonds)? What has been your experience so far?

- What have you done so far to educate yourself as an investor and trader?
Here are the requirements for your application:

- Applicants must state their full name and school that they are attending or planning to attend.
- Applicants must state their email address and phone number. The receiver of this scholarship will first be contacted via email. If he/she does not reply in 1 week, he/she will be contacted via phone.
The more interest you demonstrate in investing and trading, the more likely you are to receive this scholarship. “Interest” does not refer to the amount of pre-existing knowledge you have about the financial markets. “Interest” refers to your desire to learn about investing and trading.
About the Bull Markets Investing and Trading Scholarship
Investing and trading isn’t as hard as some “experts” make it seem. That’s why the Bull Markets blog tries to help investors and traders of all ages understand the markets using a rational and consistent method.
- For starters, long term investing is easier than short term trading in the stock market.
- There is no one-size-fits-all approach to the financial markets. Every young investor and trader can develop a strategy that suits himself/herself.
- Young investors and traders should learn how to do quantitative analysis instead of “guessing” which way the market is going to go. Investing and trading is all about probability. Data on the Santa Claus Rally is a very simple example of quantitative analysis.
- And most important of all, starting young is better than starting at an older age! Let the laws of compounding work in your favor. The earlier you start, the sooner you can let your portfolio compound on itself.
