"In my short time in STEM I have not met many other queer-identified folks in my courses. I would like to be part of (and in the future, create) a network for queer folks in STEM. I would love to find other queer folks with my interests because I have realized I do feel safest with other people of my same identity."

“To all the donors who give to the Point Foundation, I hope you realize the gravity of every single dollar that you put towards us. Every single penny that you have invested in scholars like me has changed our lives for the better. A lot of us don’t have access to these kinds of [opportunities] on a daily basis and the fact that you decided to put in time and energy and effort and put that money towards us is incredibly life-changing.”

"This scholarship helped me during my most difficult time in my life so far. I am grateful for the opportunity I had to be a part of The Point Foundation. The coaching program helped me connect to really great people who could potentially help me out with internship opportunities and networking. Thank you so, so much!"
