Across the United States, far too many people in the LGBTQ+ community are denied human rights, robbed of big opportunities, and ridiculed solely because of their identity.
Frequently experiencing hate and discrimination can often manifest itself in harmful ways. Seeing that LGBTQ+ youth seriously contemplate suicide at almost three times the rate of heterosexual youth, there need to be distinct opportunities for members of the LGTBQ+ community to feel safe and supported in their fight for equality.
At Pride Palace, we are that change. As an LGBTQ+ apparel company aiming to create a community, called our family, our team is dedicated to encouraging people to physically embrace their pride. We believe in amplifying the voices of the LGBTQ+ community as they are all voices that deserve to be heard.
The Pride Palace LGBTQ+ Scholarship will be awarded to a person who is a champion for change in the LGBTQ+ community. If you identify within the LGBTQ+ community, you're eligible to apply.
To apply, please submit your social media and share in three or fewer sentences, what makes you proud to be a part of the LGBTQ community.

The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 31, 2021. 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 or future 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.
