Happy National Coming Out Day and kick off to Pride Foundation Scholarship season! We’ve been watching the leaves change color and recovering from our first colds of the school season, and that means it is finally time—our 2024 scholarship application is now open.
Our scholarships fund LGBTQ+ students who are leaders—in their own lives, in their families, in their home communities, in their field of study, in their workplace, or in our movements for justice. Our program provides resources to students who need it most, regardless of school, major, or GPA.
Since awarding our first scholarship in 1993, we have awarded over $8.5 million to 2,452 students in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Through the incredible generosity of our community, Pride Foundation has more than 60 scholarship funds—but students only need to complete one application.
Applications are due Friday, January 5, 2024, and any LGBTQ+ student who is a resident of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, or Washington state is eligible to apply. You can find out more details about the basic requirements, process, and application here.
Help us make sure every student in our region knows about this opportunity for support—please help spread the word to students in your networks—or apply yourself!
We’re looking forward to meeting the 2024 Pride Foundation Scholars!
