Launching on June 1, in honour of Pride Month, is the newly established IGNITE Pride Scholarship. Each summer, this $1,000 scholarship will be granted to a total of five students from Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber’s 2SLGBTQ+ community.
IGNITE recognizes the unique challenges 2SLGBTQ+ members face, including social stigma and higher levels of financial insecurity. With this scholarship, IGNITE hopes to offer better support and alleviate some of the financial hardships disproportionately affecting this community.
If you are currently a Humber College or University of Guelph-Humber student in good academic standing who identifies as 2SLGBTQ+, is in need of financial aid and demonstrates strong leadership qualities and community involvement, fill out the application below!
Applications for this scholarship open on June 1, 2021 and close on June 30, 2021.
For any further questions regarding the application process, please email Kristin Galvan, Manager, Leadership & Advocacy.
