Overview of Annual Scholarship Volunteer Opportunities

With over 60 different scholarships, Pride Foundation’s Scholarship Program is open to all students who meet Pride Foundation’s fundamental criteria of LGBTQ+ leadership and state residency.

Each year, a team of 200 dedicated Pride Foundation volunteers throughout the Northwest review more than 600 scholarship applications. The scholarship review cycle takes place between January & April and volunteers are instrumental in all aspects of the review process.

Phase 1 (Jan through Feb) is our Community Scholarship Review:

  • Read, evaluate, and recommend approximately 20 applications as part of a team.
  • Approximately 22 total volunteer hours are needed, including one team meeting.

Phase 2 (Feb through March) is our Donor Funded Scholarship Review:

  • Read, evaluate, and recommend approximately 20 applications as part of a team.
  • Additionally, in early April, volunteers may also be interviewing candidates as part of a team for specific scholarships.
  • Approximately 22 – 27 total volunteer hours are needed, including one team meeting, and optional interview day the first or second Saturdays in April.
