The 2019 scholarship application will be released the first week in August and awarded in September 2019.
Sun City Pride sponsors scholarships for 3-5 El Paso Students each year pursuing high education from community college to medical school. In 2018, we gave away $10,000 to local LGBTQ students! Scholarships are based on an application that helps demonstrate each student's dedication to the LGBT community as well as their goals in helping the community at large. Over the years, this program has grown along with El Paso's rich education market. We have been thrilled to support students form a wide range of careers including the arts, engineering and medicine.
It is through the hard work of the El Paso Sun City Pride board members that we are able to provide so many students with this opportunity. We hope that as Pride grows, we will be able to continue to bring financial support to those most deserving to continue to raise our community up and help LGBT students thrive. The application process opens March of each year and closes May 1st.
