PFLAG National Scholarship Program
     

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION IS OPEN

Are you lesbian, gay or bi (or asexual, pansexual, queer, or somewhere in the LGB "family")? Are you trans, gender-expansive, gender-queer or somewhere on (or even off) the gender spectrum? Are you an awesome Ally? Our scholarship program is entering its 15th year and supports the next generation of leaders who have already been working tirelessly on numerous programs, projects, and activities aimed at making schools and communities safe and welcoming for all.

Open to U.S. and non-U.S. citizens (Non-US citizens are eligible as long as they attend an accredited institution in the United States).

PFLAG National awarded more than $75,000 in scholarships in 2015 with awards starting at $1,000 up to $5,000 for the winners.
