Following the example of the national PFLAG organization and multiple chapters across the country, PFLAG Denver’s Scholarship Program is awarding one or more scholarships to exceptional graduating Colorado high school students. Please note that our scholarship amounts have increased for the 2016 awards to keep pace with the rising costs of education.
You can find full instructions and the scholarship application here, as well as print out a flyer to advertise this scholarship at your school:
Our goal is to recognize, assist, and encourage LGBTQ students and straight allies to continue post-secondary education, and to promote a positive image of LGBTQ youth. We expect that young people who have demonstrated outstanding, direct support to the LGBTQ community and advocated equality for all will continue to do so on their campuses and in their communities.
Evaluation is based upon demonstrated leadership, scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities, and involvement in the LGBTQ community.
