Rainbow Youth Scholarship

The Los Angeles LGBT Center's Rainbow Youth Scholarship provides scholarship funding to LGBTQ+ youth engaged in higher education. This scholarship fund was created to assist youth in reaching their career and educational aspirations and was founded on the belief that all young people are deserving of a supportive educational experience. Scholarships are intended for youth who would otherwise be unable to afford college tuition, books and related expenses. Eligible applicants include people who will be attending a college or university for their undergraduate degree, as well as those enrolled in an accredited training program. All majors and studies are eligible for this scholarship.
