Meet Our Scholars

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

Visit Point’s Community College Scholarship Program page to meet the 2020 recipients of these scholarships.


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. By linking education with leadership potential, Point catalyzes the growth of all Point Scholars and Alumni to become leaders who work to advance LGBTQ rights and create a more inclusive, equitable society.
