  • Scholarship Description
  • The Rainbow Scholarship seeks to assist gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI), college-bound teens with school expenses while increasing the positive visibility of queer youth and promoting awareness and acceptance in the community at large.

    To foster dialogue between administration, counselors, faculty and youth of secondary educational institutions regarding minority issues, there is an essay contest which is open to all students regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. In understanding that open and healthy communication is vital to the awareness and acceptance of diverse populations, we encourage everyone to participate.

    - Identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or intersex, with the exception of the essay contest
