About the Scholarship

The students who belong to the LGBTQ community are awarded scholarships by the Pride Foundation in order to support and encourage such students and relieve them of the financial burden.

The scholarship helps the students who come from a non-supportive background to overcome economic, racial, social, geographical or political barriers while receiving higher education from a reputed university or college. Students may demonstrate financial need as well.

Basically, the Pride Foundation Scholarship provides the students with the opportunity to achieve their goals and realize their dreams.
