Now Accepting Applications

The Pride Scholarship is awarded annually to 2 eligible applicants between the age of 17-25, who are residents of Ohio, and are seeking scholarship money to any university, community college, technical school, art school, or para-professional program. While only 2 recipients are awarded each year, applicants may apply annually as long as they are eligible for consideration. Deadline to apply is April 15th, 2024

Criteria For Selection

Any eligible candidate with a relationship to the LGBTQ+ community is invited to apply; this means LGBTQ-identified, ally, or family and/or friend of LGBTQ+ individuals. The recipients will receive a check for $1000 with the stipulation that the money be used for tuition, books, or other costs and fees associated with post-secondary education.

  • Recipients will be chosen based on the entirety of their application packet.
  • Though we do ask for the applicant to submit their GPA and list of strengths, the LGBT Pride Scholarship is not purely an academic scholarship.
  • Rather, the committee is tasked with awarding this scholarship to the applicant who best demonstrates how their goals, personal character, and achievements are currently making a positive impact on the LGBTQ+ community in general.
  • It is also mandatory that recipients be present at the event when the scholarships are awarded.
