LGBTQ & ALLY Student Scholarships – 1/12/2018




Greetings from Pride Foundation and the GSBA Scholarship Fund!

We are excited to announce that our LGBTQ & ally scholarship application opens October 11th and to ask you to share this opportunity with students of any age from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, or Washington who are pursuing any post-secondary education, including community college, public or private colleges & universities, trade schools/apprenticeships, or certificate programs. Since 1990, more than $6.8 million in Pride Foundation and GSBA scholarships have been awarded to support the educational pursuits of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, (LGBTQ) and ally students. There are over fifty different types of scholarships, but only one web-based application for students to complete.

Please help us spread the word about these scholarships to students in your school or community by putting up these flyers prominently and announcing this on your website, social media accounts, newsletter and/or school newspaper. Our scholarships have the power to make a significant impact on the lives of LGBTQ and ally students. Some LGBTQ students may not be “out” in their school or community and some ally students may not be aware that our scholarships are available to them as well. We have also included sample announcement text at the end of this email for your convenience. Download our 8½”x11” color flyer from our website to share with students and help us promote the scholarship application.

Scholarship applications must be submitted by 4:00pm AKST/5:00 pm PST /6:00pm MST on Friday, January 12, 2018 and are completed online athttp://www.pridefoundation.org/scholarships/ or at http://www.thegsba.org/scholarship-home

To further assist students applying for these scholarships, we will hold Scholarship Application Workshops throughout the Northwest and online in the fall. See our websitefor specific times and locations. To request a workshop, please emailscholarships@pridefoundation.org.

We look forward to receiving applications from your students and thank you in advance for playing your part to support tomorrow’s leaders!

With pride,
