In addition to the BIPOC Scholarship, the Point Foundation offers another scholarship called the Point Flagship Scholarship. This scholarship is open to undocumented LGBTQ students (with and without DACA) in both undergraduate and graduate school! “The Point Flagship Scholarship empowers LGBTQ students who are earning their undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees at accredited colleges in the United States. The Flagship Scholarship is for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students earning a degree.”
“Point considers many factors when assessing scholarship applicants, including leadership and community involvement, academic achievement, LGBTQ advocacy, and financial need. Flagship scholarship recipients receive financial support, access to multiple leadership development programs, mentorship or coaching, and the support of a community of scholars and alumni. The financial aid award is based on need and renewable for up to four years of support.”
