WiseGeek LGBTQ+ Awareness Scholarship                                           Due 7/1/21

Amount: $500

“Equality means more than passing laws. The struggle is really won in the hearts and minds of the community, where it really counts.” - Barbara Gittings. 

Across the United States, far too many people in the LGBTQ+ community are denied human rights, robbed of big opportunities, and ridiculed solely because of their identity. Combatting civil rights issues that the LGBTQ+ community face regularly requires providing distinct and unique opportunities for people to grow and flourish. The WiseGeek LGBTQ+ Awareness Scholarship exists to support the dreams and aspirations of LGBTQ+ youth across the country. The scholarship is open to students who identify as a member of this community.
