Hey… you! Yes, you! Do you identify as LGBT and/or API? Are you a leader or budding leader in your community? Are you a high school student, college student, or graduate student? (students of life don’t count, sorry!) If so, then you’re in luck – here’s a chance to earn a scholarship that you can apply towards your rapidly declining education fund! The Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) Foundation Scholarship is a scholarship that seeks to provide financial assistance to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Asian and Pacific Islanders who are currently in high school or postsecondary school. This scholarship awards up to three students one-time scholarships of $1000 each. The GAPA Foundation is a grassroots philanthropic organization that provides funds and leverages resources to empower the Asian/Pacific Islander Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer communities. Established in August 2010, GAPA Foundation was born from the API community with the vision of not just embracing diversity and promoting visibility, but also a deep desire to partner with and reinvest in our community and people. The GAPA Foundation Scholarship is an offshoot of the George Choy Memorial Scholarship, and this will be our second year administering the scholarship since the inception of the Foundation. Our goal is to be a financial resource for non-traditional API and LGBTQ students, and to help them make their educational dreams a reality. ELIGIBILITY: Self-identified as Asian/Pacfic Islander and lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender, intersex or ally Involved in the LGBTQQIA community A student in high school or postsecondary school (trade/vocational school, community college, 4 year college or university, or graduate or professional school) TO APPLY: Please visit: www.gapafoundation.org/#!scholarship/c1s98 Please direct all questions or inquiries to: *protected email* We’re happy to help!
