The Point Foundation National LGBT Scholarship Fund
Grants scholarships to undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students of distinction. The mission of The Point Foundation is to provide financial support, mentoring and hope to meritorious students who are marginalized because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The foundation offers these awards as an investment in a better world for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. In the previous year, $125,000 in scholarships were awarded to eight scholars--six of whom are continuing their educations, and two of whom have graduated with highest honors.
Deadline: for 2010-2011 academic year, applications accepted from Dec 2009 to Feb 2010
