Point BIPOC Scholarship for LGBTQ Students Program
Point Foundation is proud to announce its new BIPOC scholarship initiative.
Generations of racism and an education system born from discriminatory policies have made clear that BIPOC students face greater obstacles to educational achievement. When these challenges are combined with those faced by students who also identify as LGBTQ, the impediments can make a higher education degree seem impossible.
Point aims to mitigate these issues by providing financial support, community resources, and professional development.
