I am a bisexual, non-binary student trying to get a scholarship to help with the cost of my studies in psychology.

In the summer of 2016, I came out before I was ready. Fast forward to four years later having been emotionally abused by my own parents because of sexuality, I removed myself from their home and continue on my path to reaching my goals. This scholarship would help me get further along as I continue my studies and my stand to support all those who are apart fo the LGBTQ community.

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'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.

My sibling is identified as transmasculine so I have been a great supporter in his discovery and journey .

The class-action federal lawsuit filed in California in 2018 alleged that ACT, Inc. violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and California's Unruh Civil Rights Act by disclosing test-takers' disability status to colleges and scholarship organizations on score reports, and denied certain examinees with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in its Educational Opportunity Service.

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
