Pride Foundation Scholarships

Provided by Pride Foundation

Description:
Pride Foundation provides post-secondary educational scholarships to current and future lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and ally leaders and role models from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. There are more than 50 different types of scholarships offered, but only one application to complete. Pride Foundation’s LGBTQ and ally scholarship program is one of the largest of its kind in the country with specific scholarships for students from various geographic areas in the Northwest, students of color, students raised by LGBT parents, and many more! Our scholarships cover any accredited post-secondary school or program. This includes community colleges, 4-year public or private colleges and universities, trade or vocational training, creative studies programs, certificate programs, medical or law schools, graduate studies, or other accredited degree programs. Students who have been stigmatized or isolated, because of their sexual orientation or gender identity often lack critical family, financial, and community support. Encouraging them to continue their education can be very challenging. Too often, individuals of great promise give up because they don’t think anyone believes in them or cares what they have to contribute. Pride Foundation also recognizes students who may not be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, but who have contributed to the LGBTQ community. These may be the children of LGBTQ parents, or just allies of our community whose leadership skills we want to foster.
