Point Foundation Scholarship Deadline January 14

The Point Foundation Scholarship application (opens in a new window) is available online, due January 14th, 2013.

****Community college applicants must also be applying to transfer to a 4-year institution in Fall 2013.
****Applicants should be “out” members of the LGBTQ community
****Applicants will be evaluated on academic achievement, personal merit, leadership, involvement in the LGBTQ community, professional experiences, financial need, marginalization, and personal and future goals.

From the Point Foundation website:

Point Foundation, established in 2001, was initially funded by a grant from Bruce C. Lindstrom & Carl T. Strickland. Point Foundation is what it is today—the premier national LGBTQ non-profit organization designed to nurture the LGBTQ leaders of the next generation – because of the generous support of others. Point Foundation empowers promising LGBTQ students to achieve their full academic and leadership potential – despite the obstacles often put before them – to make a significant impact on society.

By identifying and supporting these scholars, Point hopes to provide a greater level of acceptance and respect within future generations for all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity. We honor our scholars – their leadership, their acumen, their early involvement in LGBTQ causes, and their pledge to make the world a fairer and better place for all.

Point Scholarships are awarded on a “last provider” basis. Point fills in the gaps and provides funds not provided by other scholarships, grants, loans, work/study programs, etc. It is the responsibility of those selected as Point Scholars to secure as much outside funding as possible. Point is not intended to be, and cannot be, the sole source of support because there is no guarantee that the financial support will be the same each year, nor will it be provided each year. The scholarship amounts funded by Point each year depends on other financial support that Point Scholars receive from individuals, other foundations or grants, as well as the financial health of Point.
