DQRC Announces New Scholarship Fund for Deaf Queer Youth!
The Deaf Queer Resource Center is proud to announce the establishment of the Deaf Queer Youth Scholarship Fund, a new fund that awards monetary scholarships to deserving self-identified Deaf Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex college-bound youth.
"The main purpose of the fund is to identify, support and empower the next generation of Deaf Queer youth by recognizing and celebrating their achievements," said Dragonsani Renteria, Director of the Deaf Queer Resource Center. "We are especially interested in supporting Deaf Queer youth who have shown a commitment to creating social change."
The initial scholarships will be offered in the amounts of $250 to $500 each. In order to be considered for a scholarship, applicants must be under 25 years of age, be enrolled in high school or college, have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or better, and submit a written or video essay and other supporting documentation.
The deadline to apply is July 15, 2005.
Deaf Queer youth of color are especially encouraged to apply.
