In 2014, eQuality Scholarship Collaborative is celebrating a quarter century fostering student leadership.
eQuality Scholarship Collaborative awards scholarships to honor and encourage California students for their service to the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender community.
In general, eligible students fall into one of these categories:
Scholarships may be used for post-secondary education at accredited institutions - colleges, universities, and trade schools. Some of the scholarships are specifically for nursing or medical school.
In 2014, eQuality awarded scholarships to 13 graduating high school seniors, two community college transfer students, and two medical students. We expect to award a similar number of scholarships in 2015.
"I just started my first day of college today, and I have my first Diversity (GSA) meeting on Friday.
College is really expensive, and I was thinking how hard this would have been if I hadn't received the scholarship. I just want to thank everybody again for making this happen for me. I am so grateful for what you have given me. I wouldn't be where I am emotionally and
educationally without you and everybody else."
