Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 4.39.31 PM

The eQuality Scholarship Collaborative is offering scholarship awards (ranging from $6,000 to $12,000 each) to honor and encourage California students for their service to the LGBTQ community. Scholarships may be used for post-secondary education at accredited institutions – colleges, universities, and trade schools. These scholarship awards are open to graduating high school seniors, community college transfers, as well as students in nursing or medical school. This scholarship opportunity is open to undocumented students. The eQuality Scholarship Collaborative does not ask for Social Security numbers nor citizenship/residency status. If you meet the residency or school requirements above and are accepted to and attend an accredited post-secondary school, you may apply.

If you are a graduating high school senior or recently graduated, you must:

  • be a resident of northern or central California but may study elsewhere;
  • have completed or expect to complete high school or equivalent between 1 Jul 2011 and 30 Jun 2016; and
  • plan to attend or began attending an accredited post-secondary institution (college, university, or vocational/trade school) in 2016.

If you are a community college transfer, you must:

  • be a resident of northern or central California but may study elsewhere;
  • have graduated or expect to graduate from community college between 1 Jul 2011 and 30 Jun 2016; and
  • plan to attend or began attending an accredited 4-year college or university in 2016.

If you are in nursing school, you must:

  • be enrolled or accepted for enrollment by the interview date in an accredited ADN or BSN RN program in California. Master’s prepared programs with a BA/BS in a field other than nursing are eligible. RN reentry and RN to BSN or MSN programs are not eligible. Diploma programs are not eligible.
  • be in good academic standing with her/his nursing program or, if just entering a nursing program, must have a minimum 3.0 high school GPA with a strong emphasis on math and science.
  • not have received an eQuality nursing scholarship before.
