Stonewall Community Foundation Traub-Dicker Rainbow Scholarship

Application Deadline: June 24, 2020, noon EDT

The Traub-Dicker Rainbow Scholarship (TDRS) was established in 2004 to encourage and support lesbian women in pursuing higher education. In both their aspirations and actions, TDRS recipients demonstrate a dedication to making a difference. Graduating high school students who plan on attending an accredited, nonprofit college or university in the United States are eligible, as well as already-matriculated college students in any year of study, including graduate school. Multiple scholarships between $1,500 and $3,000 will be awarded in Summer 2020 and are non-renewable. Scholarships are paid directly to each recipient’s school.

Prioritizing merit and leadership, the TDRS Selection Committee evaluates applicants on their:

  • academic achievement;
  • engagement in community service; and
  • commitment to positively impacting the LGBTQ community.

Applicants are required to complete an application, including 3 essay questions, and submit current or most recent transcripts and one letter of reference. This scholarship is very open in terms discipline, graduate level, and citizenship (international students and undocumented students are welcome to apply).
