Aronow.io advocates for the LGBTQ+ Community year round and is delighted to offer the 2021 Pride in Diversity scholarship as an extension of this ongoing support. This year, we would like to focus on a member of the Community who may have trouble meeting their tuition needs due to discrimination, medical costs related to transitioning, or financial hardship.
As an agency focused on promoting diversity and inclusion in the Silicon Valley tech space, the Pride in Diversity Scholarship will be awarded to one deserving member of the LGBTQ+ community pursuing a degree in STEM in order to promote further representation.
To apply, submit a short video (1-2 minutes) describing your role as a member of the LGBTQ+ and STEM communities and how financial support will help you continue your educational journey.
The application deadline is Oct 12, 2022. Winners will be announced on Nov 12, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 12, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
