The Pearl Berlin Scholarship is dedicated to celebrating and supporting continuing education for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied students who exhibit courage and leadership in their schools and communities. Applicants must be residents of Guilford, Forsyth, Rockingham, Randolph, or Alamance County, North Carolina. The scholarships will be awarded to graduating, college-bound high school seniors who self-identified lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or straight ally and have demonstrated leadership in the LGBTQ community. Applicants must have demonstrated service, or a desire to serve, the LGBTQ community.
Multiple scholarships or a single scholarship will be awarded each spring. The number of scholarships and the number of individual scholarships will be determined by the scholarship committee and based on the quality and quantity of applicants. GGF creates unity through programming and philanthropy that advances equality and inclusion for LGBTQ communities. The Guilford Green Foundation seeks to courageously unite the community by fostering organizations that advance LGBTQ persons and issues.
