Generations of racism and an education system born from discriminatory policies have made clear that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color students face greater obstacles to educational achievement. When these challenges are combined with those faced by students who also identify as LGBTQ, the impediments can make a higher education degree seem impossible.
The Point Foundation aims to mitigate these issues by providing financial support, community resources, and professional development. The BIPOC Scholarship window is open in the winter and summer annually. The BIPOC Scholarship from Point Foundation provides financial, coaching, and community support to BIPOC communities.
