Hey - I know a lot of previous Humanitarians - and hopefully some current ones - were very involved in GSA. This scholarship might be good for one of you. I found it online and I think if you guys apply, someone will get it. I've learned that a lot of people don't even try for these scholarships online because they think everyone else will, and in reality a very small amount of people do. Plus, we're all so eloquent, our essays are usually the best. ;)

Third Wave Foundation Scholarship Program is available to all full-time or part-time young women and transgender activists age 30 and under who are enrolled in, or have been accepted to, an accredited university, college, vocational/technical school or community college.

The primary criteria to qualify for a Third Wave scholarship is vigorous engagement in activist work and financial need. The Scholarship Committee prioritizes applicants who have limited access to financial resources and whose civic, community, or cultural work shows a commitment to social justice.

Within our scholarship grantmaking, the Woodlake Fund provides scholarships for young women of color who prioritize social justice and the work done in the spirit of justice and equality over academic performance, and who integrate social justice into all areas of their lives.

Students applying for grants should also be involved as activists, artists, or cultural workers working on issues such as racism, homophobia, sexism, or other forms of inequality. The amount of each scholarship is decided after careful review of the student's application and financial aid report. The number of scholarships awarded depends on the amount of each award. Scholarships range in amount from $500 and $5,000 each. Our deadlines are April 1 and October 1.

You can download the application at: http://www.thirdwavefoundation.org/programs/scholarships.html

Please visit Third Wave's web site for guidelines, applications and updates to the program. If you are unable to download an application please send a pre-paid self-addressed envelop to Third Wave or email info@thirdwavefoundation.org to receive an electronic copy.

Letters sent to the Thirdwave Foundation requesting information and/or an application will not be answered.
