Point's mission, what Point
accomplishes, and Point’s scholarship funding information
Point Foundation was established in
2001 to nurture the next generation of LGBTQ leaders. Point
Foundation empowers promising LGBTQ students to achieve their full academic and
leadership potential – despite the obstacles often put before them – to make a
significant impact on society.
By identifying and supporting these scholars, Point hopes to provide a greater
level of acceptance and respect within future generations for all persons,
regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity. We
honor our scholars - their leadership, their acumen, their early involvement in
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer causes, and their pledge to make
the world a fairer and better place for all.

is not intended to be, and cannot be, the sole source of support because there
is no guarantee that the financial support will be the same each year, nor will
it be provided each year. The scholarship amounts funded by Point each year
depends on other financial support that Point Scholars receive from
individuals, other foundations or grants, as well as the financial health of
