In today’s society, inclusion is the key to equality and representation is the key to inclusion. 

Education can be a vital tool when it comes to increasing the representation of marginalized groups, such as LGBTQ+ individuals. LGBTQ+ single parents face an even greater challenge as they navigate higher education while also bearing the responsibilities of raising children on their own.

This scholarship seeks to make higher education more accessible for LGBTQ+ single parents or the children of LGBTQ+ single parents. 

Any LGBTQ+ high school or undergraduate student who is a single parent, or the child of a single parent who is in the LGBTQ+ community may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about your experience as a single parent, or your experience being the child of a single parent that is in the LGBTQ+ community, and how you plan to use your education to make an impact on the world.
