Transgender and gender-expansive individuals often face stigma, bullying, and ignorance when trying to access academic or professional spaces.
This group includes transgender people, non-binary individuals, intersex people, or those outside of these categories who identify differently, such as agender, bigender, genderqueer, or gender fluid. Unfortunately, being gender-expansive can make spaces such as college feel daunting due to the possibilities of discrimination and isolation.
This scholarship seeks to support students who are gender minorities so they can overcome the barriers to higher education that they face.
To apply, tell us about your experience with your identity, what barriers you’ve faced, what your career goals are, and how you hope to impact the LGBTQ+ community post-college.
