PFLAG San Jose/Peninsula Scholarship Program 2019 -- Deadline January 31

As a family-oriented organization, PFLAG is deeply committed to making the world a better place for our loved ones. Thanks to our generous donors, we're thrilled that we can support local youth who are committed to the same goals, and every year we award several scholarships to students -- of any gender identity or sexual orientation -- who have demonstrated service to the LGBTQ+ community.

This year for the first time we are working with another organization, eQuality Scholarship Collaborative, which is perfectly aligned to our scholarship program's mission. We've joined the collaborative as a member organization, and that means we need to make a few changes. Here are the most important ones:

Other changes include a broadening of eligibility rules, a more efficient review process, a different format and venue for the awards ceremony (it will be a dinner in San Francisco, with free tickets for a limited number of recipients' guests), and disbursement of funds through the recipient's school.

We encourage all eligible students to apply! Click here to start now. Your application must be completed by Thursday, January 31, 2019.
