The Progress Pride Scholarship has just officially launched, and I’m spreading the word to drum up interest in the application. Up for grabs are two $10k college scholarships — the Foundation’s largest scholarship awards ever — for those who identify as BIPOC and LGBTQ and who have a demonstrated record of positive service to the BIPOC and LGBTQ communities.
An essay is all that’s required up front, due January 15, 2022. Open to all U.S. university students. Awardee(s) will be selected in early 2022 and will then need to furnish a résumé/CV.
