Pride Foundation Scholarship (ID 1199)
- Start Date:
- In 1993, Brian M. Day, an activist and community leader, established the first scholarship fund at Pride Foundation. Brian understood first-hand the barriers and challenges that black gay men faced while pursuing a postsecondary degree—prompting him to focus his scholarship funds on supporting gay men of color that have significant financial need and demonstrate leadership through community engagement.
More than 20 years later, Pride Foundation’s scholarship program is still guided by Brian M. Day’s legacy, with an emphasis on providing essential financial resources and community support to LGBTQ students across the Northwest—particularly those who are vulnerable and continue to be marginalized. While much has changed for the LGBTQ community since 1993, our scholarship program continues to reaffirm the vision and values of its founding—increasing access to educational opportunities and providing critical support to tomorrow’s leaders.
