The Stonewall Community Foundation has issued a Call for Applications for its Traub-Dicker Rainbow Scholarship for Women-Identified Lesbians program.
As tuition and other education-related costs have skyrocketed in the United States, funding a college education has become a daunting challenge, particularly for some women-identified lesbians. To help address this concern, the Traub-Dicker Rainbow Scholarship was established in 2004 to encourage and support women-identified lesbians in their quest for higher education.
Scholarships are intended to be used for tuition to a nonprofit college or university and will be paid directly to the recipient’s school. Multiple scholarships between $1,500 and $3,000 will be awarded in early summer 2018 and are non-renewable.
To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate their dedication to making a difference through their aspirations and actions. Applications are judged on the applicant's academic achievement, community service, and commitment to impacting LGBTQ issues, and will only be considered from high school students who plan on attending a recognized college or university in the United States or already-matriculated college students in any year of study, including graduate school.
