Meet Our Scholars


Point Foundation is a champion for equal access to higher education and is proud that many Point Scholarship recipients are from racial and ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented on college campuses.

More than a third of Point Scholars identify as transgender or gender nonconforming, and a third of Point Scholars are first-generation college students.

In the last decade, Point has provided LGBTQ students with more than 400 scholarship awards. Point Scholars are ambitious, talented, and socially aware students who are the future leaders of the LGBTQ community.

Visit Point’s Community College Scholarship Program page to meet the 2018 recipients of these scholarships.
