Point Foundation LGBTQ Scholarships

Point Foundation awards scholarships for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students. Each scholar is paired with a mentor and participates in leadership development programs and events. The scholarship awarding process considers academic performance, leadership skills, financial need, personal goals and the applicant’s involvement in the LGBTQ community. Attention is also given to students who have lost the social support of their families and/or communities as a result of revealing their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Each person who applies for a Point Scholarship is evaluated on the totality of their situation.
