Self-love and acceptance are critical to a full life, but unfortunately, with many existing forms of homophobia today, it can be extremely difficult for those in the LGBTQ+ community. 

With social media being so accessible today, we are more connected than ever. That doesn’t always mean it’s for the better, though. 

Daily, millions are ridiculed and belittled because of their identity, their beliefs, or how they may express themselves. Seeing that LGBTQ youth are almost five times as likely to have attempted suicide compared to heterosexual youth, there must be significant social change to combat the hateful rhetoric against their community and to encourage LGBTQ+ youth to love themselves for who they are. 

To contribute to necessary social reparations, The Unicorn Scholarship exists to support LGBTQ+ students in their journey toward self-love and acceptance. This scholarship is open to all undergraduate students who identify as LGBTQ+.

To apply, please write a short essay about the first time you felt like you truly loved yourself or struggled to love yourself and how you plan to make a difference in the social realm around LGBTQ+ awareness and positivity.
