  • Point Foundation BIPOC Scholarship for LGBTQ Students Application deadline: November 5, 2021

    Point Foundation is proud to announce its newest BIPOC scholarship initiative.

    Generations of racism and an education system born from discriminatory policies have made it clear that BIPOC students face greater obstacles to educational achievement. When these challenges are combined with those faced by students who also identify as LGBTQ, the impediments can make a higher education degree seem impossible.

    Point aims to mitigate these issues by providing financial support, community resources, and professional development.

    WHO SHOULD APPLY?
    • Members of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities who identify as LGBTQ
    • Students must be enrolled or intending to enroll at an accredited community college, four-year college/university, or graduate program based in the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska, in the fall of 2021 or spring of 2022 who are also:
      • Maintaining a full-time or part-time course load
      • Demonstration a proven commitment to furthering their education

    Visit the Point Foundation for more information.
