Gender Alliance of the South Sound Scholarship Fund

$500

May 31, 2021

Awards Available: See Description

  • Scholarship Description
  • In conjunction with the Gender Alliance of the South Sound's goals of support and education, a Scholarship Fund designed to recognize outstanding transgender students and promote their educational goals has been created. Opportunities for gender identity minorities are in short supply, and the need for positive role models acute. This fund is intended to celebrate the achievements of individuals with "gender identity" minority status. Although not required to be out as transgender within the community, preference will be given to those trans-individuals that wish to serve as "out and proud" role models for other transgender identified people. Applicants must identify as transgender, be attending a post-secondary educational program during the next academic year, and must reside within the South Sound region of Washington state which includes Lewis, Mason, Thurston, Kitsap, Pierce and south King. Scholarship is awarded based on a combination of achievements in the areas of academic excellence, leadership, extra-curricular activities, and on financial need. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
