We’re excited to announce that we will restart our scholarship program for the 2021-2022 school year! Applications are open as of 2/16/2020. Click here to learn more.
2016 program information:
Note: these applications are closed. We will announce our next scholarship program on social media and this page when it launches. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr or sign up for our email list to be notified right away.
In 2016, we offered four small ($500-$2,000) scholarships for trans scholars! These scholarships are great if you’re looking for some extra money to support you through the school year and help you with your activist efforts. Applications will open up in early April.
Information from 2016:
We may include other scholarships based on the number of donations and donors’ wishes. Scholarships are not limited to one per person. Applications must be in by Friday May 15th Wednesday May 20th, 2015 (the deadline has been extended) and finalists will be notified by June 3rd. We encourage you to submit your application early.
We are still seeking donations! If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a scholarship sponsor or donor, you can also donate directly to our scholarship fund on our donation page (just be sure to comment “scholarships” when donating).
