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 identify as a transmasculine. I have been accepted to Southern Utah University. I am a Senior in High School, and I have been out since my freshman year. I would like to apply for this scholarship.

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.

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

Evangeline F  on 11/1/2011 4:17:39 PM

I will be sure to enter! I love finding unusual scholarships, that still apply and mean something to me. Thank you for supprting LGBTQ students.
