Point Foundation Scholarships


Fellowship Information

Description:

The Point Foundation provides scholarships for students who have demonstrated involvement and activism in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) community.

Who Should Apply:

Point Scholars are selected based on social, emotional and financial need, scholastic aptitude, and leadership potential. Particular attention is paid to those students who have lost the financial and social support of their families and/or communities as a result of revealing their sexual orientation or gender identity. Point Scholars are those who are physically, intellectually, and morally capable of leadership within their chosen fields, and who have demonstrated involvement in the LGBTQ community. You must be “out” as a person who identifies as a member of the LGBTQ community to apply and you should have a history of leadership in the LGBTQ community and plan to be a LGBTQ leader in the future.
