Point Foundation (Point) encourages LGBTQ community-college students who are planning to transfer to a four-year degree program to apply for its Community College Scholarship Program.
Students accepted into the program receive a financial award, transfer coaching, and academic planning guidance at the Point Community College Transfer Symposium in Los Angeles, as well as access to the Point Foundation network of LGBTQ scholars and alumni. Profiles of Point's current Community College Scholarship recipients and application information are online at PointFoundation.org/communitycollege.
Applications for scholarships accepted online will be open March 1.
Also, Point Foundation scholars, alumni and supporters will hold an event Thursday, March 8, 6-8 p.m., at Salero, 621 W. Randolph St.
The evening will feature remarks from Point Scholars and staff to help increase awareness of the foundation's mission and work, as well as an introduction on how individuals and companies can help support Point's programs and initiatives.
