In 1993, Brian M. Day, an activist and community leader, established the first scholarship fund at Pride Foundation to support gay men of color who are leaders in their communities and are experiencing significant financial need. Brian understood first-hand the challenges that black gay men face while pursuing a post-secondary degree.
More than 25 years later, Pride Foundation’s scholarship program continues to be guided by Brian M. Day’s legacy. Today, there are more than 60 different scholarship funds covering a wide range of characteristics and majors. We encourage all LGBTQ and allied students of all backgrounds and educational interests to apply.
Pride Scholarship Program
Pride Foundation provides essential financial resources and community support to LGBTQ and allied student leaders in the Northwest—particularly those who face barriers due to race, economic circumstances, identity, ability, location, or lack of family support.
Do you identify as LGBTQ, questioning, or an ally? Do you currently live, have recently lived, or study in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, or Washington? Great news! You are likely eligible to apply for a Pride Foundation Scholarship when our application opens back up in October 2019.
