Pajaro Valley Pride Scholarship

Part of our efforts include providing resources to our under-resourced community in the form of scholarships to local LGBTQIA+ and allies that aspire to pursue higher education. We want to foster our leaders and provide them with the support, confidence, and resources needed to help them aim for long-term goals.

  • Criteria Include:  Enrollment in a high school under the Pajaro Valley Unified School District.  2.5 GPA or higher.  Enrolling full-time to a higher education institution in the fall directly after graduation. Be LGBTQIA+ identifying or ally.

  • Each Scholarship is for the amount of $500.  With time, we hope to increase that amount.

The application may also be downloaded from our website: pajarovalleypride.org/scholarship/
