Attaining a good education is critical to the long term success of transgender individuals. Unfortunately, trans students are often unable to access a college education due to financial disadvantages.
At Eastern PA Trans Equity Project we are changing that by providing scholarships to new or returning transgender college student each year.
Our Transgender College Scholarship is a direct cash grant that helps students cover the cost of tuition, housing, books, and meals so that transgender students can focus on what’s important – building a great future for themselves.
Applicants must meet the following elibibility critera for their application to be considered:
Applications for the 2022 scholarship will be accepted beginning January 1, 2022
