In partnership with Equity Foundation, Portland Latino Gay Pride (PLGP) will award a one-thousand dollar scholarship to a deserving student. Established in 2012, by the Portland Latino Gay Pride Board of Directors, the PLGP Scholarship is the only scholarship at Equity Foundation to focus on the Latino/a community. With a preference placed on Latino/a candidates, students who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (GLBT), or are the children of GLBT parents, who reside in Oregon or Clark County Washington, and need financial assistance to attain their post-secondary educational goals are encouraged to apply.
For the past eight years PLGP has brought community together to recognize the contributions and celebrate the history of the Latino/a LGBTQ Community. This year’s events are scheduled for July 20 & 21 and will celebrate the theme ¡Viva la Vida! Funds raised at these events go towards the PLPG Scholarship award and PLGP’s annual contribution to the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber’s Scholarship Program.
The application for the PLGP Scholarship along with all Equity Foundation scholarships can be downloaded at www.equityfoundation.org/scholarships. Deadline to apply is July 1.
The 2013 Scholarship Recipient will be recognized at this year’s celebration. Please visit PLGP website for event updates and information www.latinogaypridepdx.com.
