Prism Foundation Scholarships

Application Deadline: June 7, 2020, 11:59pm PDT

The purpose of the Prism Foundation Scholarships is to celebrate and reward outstanding scholar activists who are making a positive impact on the API (Asian & Pacific Islander) and LGBTQ+ communities. Prism Foundation Scholarships range from $1000–$5000, and several scholarships are awarded in a calendar year.


  • Applicants must be attending a post-secondary institution in the United States in the upcoming academic year (starting in the Fall of this current year) when applying. The application is open to students who attend community college, university, and trade/vocational school.
  • Prism welcomes everyone to apply, including allies. Applicants should have a strong history of work and impact within the API and/or LGBTQ+ communities; however, applicants do not need to identify as either to apply.
  • The scholarship program is open to US citizens, permanent residents, and non-US citizens.
