LGBTQ+

Despite recent legal and social progress, many LGBTQ+ individuals are still discriminated against in academia, the workforce, and society in general. 

In the last year alone, one-third of LGBTQ+ individuals in the US faced discrimination, with transgender Americans facing even higher rates of discrimination, affecting 3 in 5. This discrimination can reduce one’s opportunities, can contribute to mental health crises, and can discourage people from seeking necessary medical care. 

The Pool family is a family with LGBTQ+ kids and a proud mom who has been involved with their local PFLAG organization for many years. They are looking to make a difference for an LGBTQ+ student who is looking to further their education at college or trade school.

Any LGBTQ+ undergraduate student may apply for this exclusive scholarship opportunity. 

To apply, submit an essay OR video telling us about your experiences as an LGBTQ+ student as well as your goals.
