Point

Point Foundation Scholarship

Point Foundation is the nation’s largest higher education scholarship-granting organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students. Point’s multifaceted support of its scholarship recipients extends far beyond direct financial contribution toward the cost of their education. Each scholar is paired with a mentor and participates in leadership development programs and events. Applicants must be currently enrolled or intending to enroll in school the following fall, they must also be "out," have strong academic achievements, and a track record of leadership and community involvement for the LGBTQ community.
National deadline: Monday, January 30, 2017
