The Point Foundation: The National LGBT Scholarship Fund

The Point Foundation offers annual scholarships to high-achieving LGBT students who demonstrate an interest in community service. Point particularly aims to alleviate the financial burden felt by students whose families have denied them support because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. In exchange for awards averaging $13,600, students meet high academic standards and complete a service project based in the LGBT community. An annual application is open from January to March.
