Following the Pulse tragedy, the Central Florida Foundation (Website) launched The 49 Fund (Website), an annual scholarship award for local LGBT students, as a partnership between the LGBT Center and local attorney Barry L. Miller.
This year the Fund will award up to ten local LGBT students up to $4,900 each to help them pay for college tuition.
To qualify, students must be self-identified as out and an active member of the LGBT community. They must attend an accredited two or four-year institution full-time, have GPA of at least 3.0, and “demonstrate a commitment to making Central Florida a better place.”
