Stonewall offers scholarships

High school seniors should apply by March 1

Stonewall Alliance Center has created its first scholarship. The Youth Empowerment program is designed to help high school seniors who identify as LGBTQ and are interested in pursuing their education in an academic or vocational capacity. The goal is to award four students who are active and positive forces in their community with scholarships of $500, $1,000, $2,500 and $3,000.

The deadline to apply is March 1. Applications can be found at under the “Programs” tab. The scholarships are not necessarily need-based, but those with a financial need can fill out a form for additional consideration. Awardees will be announced by May 15.
