Everyone should be empowered to be their authentic and unapologetic selves through safe spaces, open discussions, and transparent education. 

LGBTQ+ individuals are constantly forced to fight for their rights and to endure discrimination, with more than one-third of LGBTQ+ Americans facing discrimination each year. Lately, many in the LGBTQ+ community are worried about attacks on their rights occurring in several states. 

This scholarship seeks to encourage and uplift LGBTQ+ individuals so they can lead proud and successful lives.

Any LGBTQ+ high school student graduating in 2022 in Florida with at least a 2.5 GPA may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us how your coming out experience has been able to reveal your true self to your family, friends, or even the world.
