Cesar was a beloved child: imaginative, creative, talented, as well as sensitive and kind, who passed away too soon after a struggle with his mental health.

Unfortunately, the discrimination and cruelty that many transgender people are exposed to from a young age can have an impact on their mental health, raising the risk of suicide. Combating the hurdles thrown at the transgender community requires uplifting students so they can overcome the challenges they face and achieve their dreams.

This scholarship aims to honor Cesar’s life by supporting transgender students who are pursuing higher education despite the obstacles they are facing.

Any transgender high school or undergraduate student with financial need may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about yourself, how being transgender has affected you, why you’re passionate about your chosen field, who or what influenced your career choice, and how you plan to reach your goals.
