I am attending my first year at a community college in hopes of transferring to NC university. I also identify as pansexual (including those who don’t identify in the gender spectrum), and have been out since my senior year of high school.

I am a gay male that has been accepted to an accredited university in Missouri. I would like to apply for this scholarship.

I'm not exactly a part of the LGBT Community but I'm a big supporter of the community, as well I'm a nontraditional christian that supports gay marriage and adoption. Which tends to get me a lot of hate because most of the christian community is very judgmental. I just wanted to say that there's at least one christian supporter over here that believes the LGBT Community deserves the same rights as straight couples. Love is love and that's all that should matter.

In a normal time, not getting enough to eat can impact students’ grades, health and ability to finish their degrees. And a loss of campus jobs, housing and meal plans due to the pandemic puts more students in danger of going without the food they need. That’s where student-run food banks and pantries come in.
