||COLAGE and the Family Pride Coalition are pleased to announce the
Eleventh Annual Lee Dubin Scholarship Fund for people with lesbian, gay,
bisexual, and transgender parents.
For the eleventh year, COLAGE and Family Pride Coalition will be
offering four to five $1000 scholarships to support the undergraduate
studies of students with LGBT parents. The application deadline is April
COLAGE (Children Of Lesbians And Gays Everywhere) and the Family Pride
Coalition will be awarding at least four scholarships to children of
LGBT parents through their collaborative Lee Dubin Scholarship Fund.
Each scholarship will provide up to $1000 of funding for undergraduate
college students who have demonstrated ability and commitment to
affecting change in the LGBT community and the community at large.
Some of the most powerful members of the LGBT community are the children
of LGBT parents who have grown up being nurtured and supported by this
community and are now part of a whole generation of people who have the
power to create dramatic change in the world. Through college
scholarships we aim to honor this power and celebrate the unique
experiences and achievements of our families.
The Lee Dubin Scholarship is named in honor of a gay father and founder
of the Family Pride Coalition. To date over $20,000 in funds have been
distributed. We are especially seeking to honor students who are
actively working to combat homophobia and increase positive awareness of
LGBT families to apply. We also strongly encourage applications from
individuals with demonstrated financial need.
