Scholarships

The Equality in Education Program is funded by community efforts to provide equity, inclusion, and diversity in the Loudoun County community through a variety of initiatives including: 

  • Equality in Education Scholarships: Each year, EQLOCO selects from four local Loudoun County graduating high school seniors to provide a $1,000 scholarship for continuing education. Starting in 2022, 4 scholarships have already been awarded.

  • ChangeMaker Grants: To support the incredible work of Loudoun's PTO's, GSA's, teacher organizations, parent's groups, and more, the Board of Directors selects an annual group to receive a grant to support their mission. Congratulations to our past winners: 

    • 2021: Leesburg Elementary School's Parent-Teacher Organization​

    • 2022: Briar Woods H.S.'s Gender-Sexuality Alliance

  • Love & Learn Workshops: Providing accurate information and perspective on a variety of topics is the key to educating those who need to know, including parents a families, educators, elected officials businesses, and more. With understanding comes acceptance. The Workshops are an effort to provide free professional and personal development that expands that understanding. Learn more here.
