Thanks to the generosity of our community, Pride Foundation is able to offer a diversity of scholarships, which encourage students of different backgrounds and educational interests to apply. We offer over 50 different types of scholarships available, but students only need to fill out one application. Most scholarships are available for straight ally or questioning students as well as student of LGBTQ parents. All promote leadership and diversity in the LGBTQ community. Scholarships are organized in four distinct categories: academic pursuits, community leadership, cultural identities, and geography.
