NOTE ON FUNDING

Point Scholarships are awarded on a “last provider” basis, meaning that Point fills in the gaps and provides funds not provided by other scholarships, grants, loans, work/study programs, etc. It is the responsibility of those selected as Point Scholars to annually secure as much other funding as possible. For information about other sources of financial aid, see our Additional LGBTQ Resources page.
