EQUALITY IN EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS
Historically, LGBTQ+ students are left out of important programs that recognize their contributions to creating equitable and inclusive schools and larger community. While other scholarships exist in Loudoun to recognize the needs of other marginalized community, only Equality Loudoun offers scholarships specifically for LGBTQ+ students in Loudoun County with the goal of pursuing higher education.
The Equality in Education Scholarships are awarded in June of each year at our annual Loudoun Pride Festival. To date, over $13,000 in scholarships have been awarded. Each year, we set a goal to provide over $10,000 in scholarships. To learn more, please support our annual Give Choose donation drive in March or Donate that goes entirely to our scholarship program.
