To the winners of the 2016–17 high school seniors English essay contest, $1,000 scholarships are available for studies in queer theory or a related field at the U.S. college or university of their choice. Examples of related fields are queer medical, legal, or social issues.
As Queer Scholars, these young writers can positively affect the conditions of their fellow LGBTQA students and other queer youth. Collected, their writings can become queer-the-curriculum materials that schools and teachers can use for positive change.
For detailed information about QF scholarships, contest rules, queer-the-curriculum materials for use in schools, or general information about the Queer Foundation Effective Writing and Scholarships Program, visit http://queerfoundation.org.
Application deadline: February 14, 2017
