Equity Foundation is proud to announce that we have awarded $85,400 in scholarship funding to 23 LGTBTQ and allied students for the 2015-2016 school year.
Equity Foundation is host to some of Oregon’s longest standing scholarships. Our scholarship program is supported by members of the LGBTQ and allied community who are committed to assisting students of all ages fund their education. With their support, we are able to provide financial assistance to students like Neil Panchmatia, who is pursuing a Master’s in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling at Portland State University and hopes to work with Portland’s refugee and immigrant communities. And Leslie Perez-Cervantes, a biochemistry major at Linfield College who plans to pursue a career in pediatric medicine and provide healthcare to low-income families.
We are excited to support students like Neil and Leslie who are committed to advancing equity for communities across Oregon. Congratulations to all of our 215 scholarship recipients!
