At Hampton Roads Pride, we understand the significance of making a positive impact on the lives of individuals within our community. We are thrilled to announce that, during PrideFest in June 2024, we will be awarding scholarships totaling up to $20,000.
These scholarships are merit-based, considering academic achievements and, notably, community involvement. Hampton Roads Pride is committed to supporting the educational pursuits of individuals who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or Questioning (LGBTQ+), or those affiliated with related communities (including, but not limited to, Intersex, Asexual, Pansexual, Two-spirit, Nonbinary, Agender, and Genderqueer). Additionally, we extend our scholarship opportunities to LGBTQ+ allies—individuals who may not identify as LGBTQ+ but wholeheartedly support and ally with the LGBTQ+ community.
The scholarships, totaling up to $20,000, will be disbursed directly to each recipient's educational institution in June 2024. We believe in fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for all, promoting educational empowerment within our diverse community.
