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 .

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.

Remembering 9/11

September 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America. We honor those who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, as well as the first responders who gave their lives rescuing survivors, and the passengers of Flight 93 who thwarted the hijacker’s plans. The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation. Now, even in the midst of another national crisis, we feel it is appropriate to take the time to remember this tragedy. [...]
