Pride Foundation

Students who have been stigmatized, isolated or closeted because of sexual identity issues often lack critical family, financial and community support. Encouraging them to continue their education can be very challenging.

Scholarships that clearly say, this is for you can make a huge difference.

Pride also recognizes students who may not be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, but who have contributed to the LGBT community. These may be the children of LGBT parents, or just friends of our community whose leadership skills we want to foster.
