2011 National Scholarship Winners


Since 2004, the PFLAG National Scholarship Program has awarded close to $254,000 in scholarships to students who represent some of the best and brightest advocates for equality in the country.

In 2011, PFLAG is proud to name 19 new PFLAG National Scholars. These future leaders represent some of the best and the brightest advocates for equality. Selected from a pool of applicants from across the country, we are pleased to share some of their accomplishments with you.

The 2011 PFLAG National Scholarship Program was made possible by many generous donations. The Palmer B. Carson Trust established the scholarship program with a substantial bequest from Mr. Carson’s estate. In 2004, the Dow Chemical Company Foundation provided nearly $5,000 in scholarship funding and, since 2007, the Gays, Lesbians, and Allies at Dow Employee Network (GLAD) initiated fundraising drives to increase support to the scholarships and have raised almost $20,000 for this project.
