Are you a current scholarship applicant?
If you’ve already submitted an application, it is currently in our review process. Pride Foundation provides a fair, confidential review, and has committed to a Scholarship Applicant Bill of Rights. In alignment with the larger work of Pride Foundation, our scholarship program prioritizes supporting LGBTQ+ and allied students who:
- Show leadership potential either within the LGBTQ+ community or within their field of study;
- Lack a broader LGBTQ+ community support system;
- Face barriers to educational access, including students who are economically, racially, socially, geographically, or politically disenfranchised. For example: LGBTQ+ students of color, transgender students, LGBTQ+ immigrant students, LGBTQ+ youth aging out of foster care, and students who have experienced homelessness, poverty, or isolation due to geography;
- Demonstrate significant financial need
You’ll be notified of whether or not you’ve received a scholarship(s) during the week of May 1, 2019. Please feel free to contact us with any questions in the meantime!
